Update on WAAGS request to be consulted on the Haigh Wood Development!
WAAG have received the following response in an emailed letter from LCC Head of Planning.
The local community will be consulted by the Local Planning Authority in due course should any future Reserved Matters applications are submitted. This consultation is a requirement for all applications within the General Development Procedure Order 2015. Furthermore, the NPPF states the importance of pre-application discussions with the Local Planning Authority and it would be expected, and certainly will be encouraged by the council, that before any Reserved Matters applications are submitted, meaningful pre-application discussions are held. At this point the importance of consultation and engagement with yourselves will be emphasised to the applicant; again this is considered to be good practice.
WAAG await further information and trust we will be contacted.
