Town and Country Planning (Development Management Procedure) (England) Order 2015
The Council has received the following planning application-Application No: A/20/89078/RET
Development at: Land to The Rear Of 36 - 38 Sandy Lane Lowton WA3 1DR For Planning Change of use from B2 & B8 with partial car sales to B8 with Permission: ancillary vehicle and equipment maintenance Applicant: Mr & Mrs Pont
The proposed development does not accord with the provisions of the Development Plan in force in the area in which the land to which the application relates is situated. An appeal has now been lodged against the decision of the Local Planning Authority to refuse the planning application. An appeal has been made to the Department for Communities and Local Government against the refusal of planning permission by the Council, as Local Planning Authority. The appeal reference number is APP/V4250/W/20/3265117. The appeal is to be decided on the basis of an exchange of written statements by the parties and a site visit by an Inspector.
Any comments already made following the original application for planning permission (unless they are expressly confidential) will be forwarded to the Department and copied to the appellant and will be taken into account by the Inspector in deciding the appeal. Should you wish to withdraw or modify your earlier comments in any way or request a copy of the appeal decision letter, you should either email northl @planninginspectorate.gov.uk or write direct to the Planning Inspectorate, Room 3, Temple Quay House, 2 The Square, Temple Quay, Bristol BS1 6PN, within 5 weeks of the appeal starting date 24th March 2021, quoting the appeal decision reference number, otherwise there is a risk that your representations will not be considered. Any additional comments should be submitted in triplicate.
If the Secretary of State receives representations after the deadline they will not normally be seen by the Inspector and they will be returned.
Further information about the appeals process can be accessed at GOV.UK -
I recommend that you read the relevant guidance.
An Inspector will visit the site during the appeal. There is normally no need for other people to take part in the site visit. However, if you own a property nearby and you want the Inspector to see the appeal site from your property you should tell them when you write to them. They will then tell you the date and time of the visit. You will not be able to discuss the case, but you will be able to point out the relevant facts and features.
The Planning Inspectorate will not acknowledge your letter unless you specifically ask them to do so. They will, however, ensure that your letter is passed on to the Inspector dealing with the appeal.
