The Waiting Game


The Waiting Game

Now after all the hard work by everybody completing their submissions to the Planning Inspectorate we wait for their decision.  The appellant, Punch Taverns, have a couple of weeks until the 23rd of May 2019 to make final comments as does the LPA (Local Planning Authority - in this case the London Borough of Bromley) - then the inspectorate will start working on the outcome of the appeal.  

The decision date has not yet been set by the Planning Inspectorate but as soon as we know it we will announce it here and on our social media platforms - this could be in around 26 weeks according to their website!

Fingers are crossed that the appeal is thrown out.

The Planning Appeal process has begun

The Save The Chelsfield Planning Appeal has begun!

As you may recall, at the council meeting of 14th February 2019 the original planning application made by Punch Partnerships (PML) Ltd to demolish our much loved pub was unanimously rejected and the council also agreed to contest the appeal that Punch had already lodged.

The appeal will be considered by the Planning inspectorate; an independent executive agency of the UK Government. We have now received confirmation that the Planning Inspectorate has, appointed a case officer; will use the written representations procedure; and that the official starting date was 4th April 2019.  Read more
