The Planning Inspectorate has just announced that the Kier’s appeal against the refusal to build 300 houses on the inaccessible east of Saffron Walden has been set for 17 March 2015. It is expected to last up to 4 days.
WeAreResidents.org is working jointly with the Saffron Walden Town Council to fight the planning application. The appeal was originally scheduled for December but was postponed because of bereavement.
WeAreResidents.org believes that the Planing Inspector’s recent rejection of the Uttlesford Local Plan strengthens their case against Kier. The former mayor of Saffron Walden, Cllr Keith Eden also believes that the rejection of the Local Plan changes things for Saffron Walden, and gives it more time to decide through the Neighbourhood Plan process.
