Since the last update on 22nd May, matters have moved on apace.
Due to the large numbers of comments received by DMBC from the public and other interested bodies, the deadline for responses has been extended to 9th August. This is to allow the applicant more time to submit further information in the light of observations or questions asked by the respondents.
This also means that there is more time for the public to raise objections. To date, there are 167 objections registered from residents of Burghwallis and the surrounding area, and this is growing daily, largely due to the efforts of a small number of people going round, literally, from door to door to garner support for opposition to the plan.
The Parish Council is totally opposed to this application on so many grounds, and our response, along with those from individuals, can be seen online, which may give you the inspiration to make your own comments.
