On Tuesday - the day before the meeting and after we emailed our latest newsletter - we received information via twitter that the DECISION meeting is CANCELLED...
Wednesday 23 March 2016 7:30 pm, CANCELLED
A new date is to be confirmed.
"British Land recently submitted some further views of the new Eden Walk and an alternative to the colour of some of the materials, along with additional material on a range of different areas in response to questions from the pre-Development Control Committee meeting. The Council would like some additional time to consider this and therefore the meeting has been deferred. At the present time we do not have another date for a Committee when one is agreed we will let you know." - Planning Officer, 23.03.2016
But we don't see these changes on the planning portal - RBK
"Whilst we have seen the images we are awaiting their formal submission which should be over the next few days after which we will upload them on to the website." - Planning Officer, 23.03.2016
So get ready for scheme #2...
"The revised and additional material has been received by the Council. The changes in our view are not significant enough to require fresh consultation however they will be published on our website next week" - Planning Officer, 24.03.2016
We did not know why it was canned so late. A Council tweet said "There are some material changes".
We did not know if the decision was made by the developer, Planning or by the Councillors.
We were left in the dark - The registered speakers were not informed. No one appeared to know what was going on.
