Taylor Wimpey resubmit application for 99 homes at Dunmow Ongar Rd South

Taylor WimpeyIn 2013 Taylor Wimpey filed a planning application for 100 homes on a site south of Ongar Rd in Great Dunmow. Residents opposed the development and UDC refused the application. It even went to appeal with the Planning Inspectorate who found in favour of residents.

Not be put off by being refused, Taylor Wimpey have now just resubmitted the same application, except for 1 house fewer. So the process of running roughshod over local residents starts all over again…..

Find out more about the new application for 99 homes and how you can submit comments to UDC. It is open to public consultation until 21st February 2014.

  1. I’m confused you say here the planning inspectorate found in favour of the residents i.e. backed UDC’s refusal of planning permission but in your history you have documents stating that the inspectorate overturned the UDC decision. How can it be coming back in a pretty much identical form if the inspector refused it?!?! Having just been through the same process with Taylor WImpey in Stansted where the inspector upheld UDC’s refusal for development at Bentfield Green (for the second time in the last 8 years) it is obviously of significance to us to hear what is happening accurately with our neighbours in Dunmow.

  2. I’m trying to get a little more detail on what happened in the past as it’s not always clear if you’re not in the thick of it. This application (for 99) is the 3rd such application to be filed for the same site – the last one was for 100 and was refused in the back half of 2013. Local residents fought the previous ones and my understanding is that they took it to the Planning Inspector because they believed that the proper process had not been followed. It seems that the Planning Inspector agreed with them. However if it is a new application (for 99) then assume the whole thing starts again. The developer is probably playing a war of attrition hoping that residents lose interest or run out of money. The system is stacked against individuals 😦
