Appeal Reference:          APP/D0121/W/15/3138816

Location:                           Land south of Knightcott Road, Banwell

Description:                      Outline planning permission with Environmental Statement for the erection of 155no. residential dwellings (including 30% affordable housing). Introduction of structural planting and landscaping, public open space, children's play area, surface water retention basin, vehicular access point from Knightcott Road, allotments, community orchard and associated ancillary works. All matters reserved with the exception of the main site access point

Appellant:                          Gladman Developments Ltd


An appeal has been made to the Planning Inspectorate against our failure to issue a decision on an application for planning permission within the appropriate period (thirteen weeks).


The appeal will be determined on the basis of an inquiry.  The procedure to be followed is set out in the Town and Country Planning Appeals (Determination by Inspectors) (Inquiries Procedure) (England) Rules 2000. This means that we and the appellant will write a statement to the Planning Inspectorate, setting out our cases and will provide each other with a copy of these. A formal inquiry conducted by a Planning Inspector will follow where expert evidence may be presented and witnesses are questioned. The Inspector will normally allow anyone else who is interested the right to speak. I will write to you again when the date and venue of the inquiry has been decided.


If you wish to make comments, or modify/withdraw your previous representation, you can do so on the Planning Portal at https://acp.planninginspectorate.gov.uk or by emailing callan.burchell@pins.gsi.gov.uk  If you do not have access to the internet, please send three copies to


Callan Burchell, The Planning Inspectorate, Temple Quay House, 2 The Square, Bristol, BS1 6PN


All representations must be received by 16 February 2016.  Any representations submitted after the deadline will not usually be considered and will be returned. The Planning Inspectorate does not acknowledge representations. All representations must quote the appeal reference.


Please note that any representations you submit to the Planning Inspectorate will be copied to the appellant and this local planning authority and will be considered by the Inspector when determining the appeal.


If you consider that the Planning Inspector needs to view the appeal site from your property or land as well, you should include this request in your letter.


The appeal documents are available for viewing on our website www.n-somerset.gov.uk/planning via the planning application number quoted in my reference. If you do not access to the internet you may use the free internet terminals at these offices (08.45 – 17.00 Mondays to Thursdays, 08.45 –16.30 Fridays).


You can get a copy of one of the Planning Inspectorate’s “Guide to taking part in planning appeals” booklets free of charge from GOV.UK at https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/taking-part-in-a-planning-listed-building-or-enforcement-appeal or from us.


When made, the decision will be published on the Planning Portal.


Please note that all planning applications and planning appeals documents, including letters and e-mails, are being displayed in full on the Council’s website for public viewing. You should bear this mind when writing comments and deciding what information to include about yourself in any letter or e-mail you send. By sending your comments you confirm that you agree to this and accept legal responsibility for your comments. To reduce the risk of fraud, you do not need to sign your letter, provided your name is clearly written on it, however, anonymous comments will not be taken into account.



Yours faithfully
