By now you are probably aware a planning modification has been submitted concerning farm buildings along Abbe’s Walk. This will change the use of the previous permission to build agricultural storage sheds into a pig farm.
The article below, which appeared in the 18th April edition of the Doncaster Free Press gives a clear summary of the situation.
The parish council along with other residents and concerned members of the public have registered at least 68 objections at the last count to DMBC to oppose this development. There is still time for you to submit your thoughts and be included in the evidence before any final judgement is given by the planning application.
The technique of submitting an innocuous planning application only to subsequently submit a more contentious change of use application is well known. This ‘under the radar’ approach can be implied as a short circuit to gain approval.
We should be equally aware that the thoughts and wishes of local residents can be enhanced by a collective attendance at the planning meeting scheduled to determine the application. You are urged to monitor progress of the application by using the following link which will give you the latest update on the DMBC website.
