On 6th November 2013 the Chairman together with Alison Shaw and three residents attended the Planning Committee meeting at Broadland District Council in order to speak outlining the reasons for their objection to the application. A number of residents also attended in support.
Representatives of the applicant also attended and presented to the Committee as did Steve Riley our local District Councillor.
Following the presentations the members of the Committee asked questions of the applicants and discussed the details of the application at some length. A number of concerns were raised on many aspects of the application. Once all the members had an opportunity to speak a vote was taken. The result was that the Committee voted 11 to 3 against the application and permission was refused.
