ARMSTRONG RIGG PLANNING
Site: Land East of Bedford Road, Lower Stondon
Client: Barratt David Wilson Homes
ARP were appointed following the refusal of a larger scheme on the site at the edge of North Herts. A site allocated in the emerging North Herts Local Plan, yet unpopular with local residents in Central Bedfordshire, which neighbours the site.
Our role has included:
Following the decision by the Planning Committee to defer the application in June 2019, an appeal was lodged under PINS new fast track procedures on the grounds of non-determination. The application was re-considered by the committee in July 2019 where members resolved that had they had the appeal not been lodged they would have approved the application in accord with the officer’s recommendation. The appeal is due to be considered at Inquiry in October 2019 but in the meantime a duplicate application has been submitted in the hope that the Inquiry can be avoided.
