Planning appeals for homes developer

By a County Press reporter

Monday, July 14, 2014

 

CONTROVERSIAL planning applications at Hazely Combe, Arreton, are to be the subject of a joint appeal to the planning inspectorate on August 12 and 13.

The Isle of Wight Council refused applications from developer Laurie Calloway for 89 houses and an access road and for 40 houses and an access road with landscaping and open space, both on land south of Hazely Combe.

The hearing will take place in the council chamber at County Hall starting at 10am.

The planning inspector will not make a decision until some time after the hearing.

you are dead right Tony pretty sure for an event as massive as that the council should have helped sort planning problem, as long as they didn't try and run it, look what happened when they tried to run the festival, anyway back to the topic in hand.

Den, i think SP has it nearly right albeit the Landowner was also slow off the mark applying for permission, but having said that and as stated before there appeared to be no will within the IWC to grasp hold and aid the promotion of a fanatastic event for years to come as they have with the Great Unwashed event in Newport ( iow festival). Perhaps there wasn't many VIP tickets handed out ?

DY, we were at n event at arreton community centre with an elderly aunt and she asked who he was and was he doing. He told her who he was and with that told her that he was responsible for getting MX stopped, to which she replied "i expect your proud of your self", to which he replyed yes.

SP was it only the Arreton manor owner or was it the whole village council that was against it, just wondered.

JA, if you had the chance to have some financial gain would you turn it down? don't think I would and if the truth known I don't think you or most of the readers on here would. (unless of course you already have pots, I don't know your situation and of course its nothing to do with me)

Sorry, I don't think it's appeal on the Island will be successful but it's when its referred off the Island that it will be very likely to go through. The government, media and bankers are obsessed with building being the only way to dig us out of the mess the country is in financially. When some faceless person with no knowledge of the IW is called upon to look at it 89 homes is laughably small (I agree not for the Island) compared to the developments in the 100/1000's that they deal with for the mainland and it is at this point that I believe it will go through.

The Biomass plant and motocross racing are topics not pertinent to this article. Nor are the various comments from people who seem to be of the misguided opinion that this is some karmic retribution for previous endeavours.

"When the appeal for 89 gets approved". An interesting comment indeed and, based on this, I have to assume that your involvement with the appeals and application process has been either A) Minimal or B) Supernatural to a point of being able to see, without doubt, into the future. Ask yourself this. If two applications are essentially the same and the only real substantial difference being the number of proposed dwellings, why would the application for 89 be approved when 40 was almost unanimously thrown out? Many of the points raised against the application for 40 are still valid no matter how many houses you add or subtract.

We must be united in the protection of our Island, from all those who seek to exploit it for nothing more than their own fina

Also if the moto cross organisers had got the planning permission sorted out we would still have a world class mx track !
