Last year Uttlesford District Council refused planning permission for 120 homes on the edge of Thaxted. The developer, Gladman, appealed the decision and the hearing starts tomorrow, Tuesday 12th January. The appeal hearing is expected to run for 8 days, Tuesday to Friday this week (13-16th) and Tuesday to Friday next week (20-23rd). The hearing is being held in the UDC officers on London Rd in Saffron Walden and starts each day at 10 AM. The public are welcome to attend.
The Hands-off-Thaxted residents group and Parish Council are jointly fighting the appeal. They would appreciate any members of the public who may have a few hours over the next 2 weeks to pop down and provide moral support.
