Telford & Wrekin Council planning application consultation – TWC/2011/0871

SENT ON BEHALF OF THE SAVE NEWPORT CAMPAIGN

In relation to your email below, we confirm that the objections contained in
our email of 10 October 2011 and subsequent correspondence, still apply.

The application as referenced in 2011, contained the proposed Sainsbury’s
superstore -are the Plans Committee being asked to endorse this as part of
its reconsideration on 24 June 2015 ?

We would also ask that the following points are brought to the attention of
Plans Committee when it reconsiders the outline planning approval previously
granted :-

– because the Council does now have sufficient land for housing to meet
forecast housing needs over the next 5 years (to 2019), then any decision
made now by Planning Committee would be premature, and that the particular
site should now be considered as a potential development site only as part
of the forthcoming new Local Development Plan (Shaping Places), for which a
draft for consultation, outlining proposed development sites over the period
to 2031, is to be considered by T&W Cabinet on 25 June 2015 and published
for public consultation before the end June 2015;

– many of the supporting technical documents for the application are out of
date. They need to
be represented to Plans Committee in an updated form to take account of
changes since they were first produced in 2011/2012 not least of which will
be the information in the draft Local Plan referenced above.

– the whole process has the appearance of a smoke screen and we believe the
main aim is to make the applicants safe from any future legal challenge as
suggested in the letters
issued by T&WC to the various applicants in April 2015.

We urge the Plans Committee to reject the application.
