Resident power: Clavering residents group win appeal against Gladman development

Clavering appeal win against GladmanChampagne corks will be popping tonight as local residents’ action group Hands-off-Clavering have won their appeal against developer Gladman who wants to build in their village. The Gladman development would have seen 42 new homes in the small Essex village of Clavering. This is the second appeal that Gladman have lost in Uttlesford district, after losing a similar appeal in Thaxted earlier in 2015.

In the decision notice the Inspector stated that planning permission was refused because:

  • UDC had the required 5-year supply of new housing approvals and so the development isn’t needed;
  • Planning approval would breach a number of UDC environmental and heritage planning policies;
  • It is considered unsustainable under the National Planning Policy Framework.

These are similar reasons to why planning was refused for 2 other recent appeals in the district – Gladman in Thaxted and Kier in Saffron Walden. Both of these appeals were referenced in the Clavering decision notice.

Congratulations to the Hands-off-Clavering team and their hard work on mobilising the village, their technical submission, fundraising and appeal itself.
