Sites in Flackwell Heath and Walters Ash will be considered at same inquiry
APPEALS against planning refusal for two travellers sites at Walters Ash and Flackwell Heath will be considered at the same inquiry.
A public inquiry into a travellers site outside the RAF base in Walters Ash was adjourned once again.
The inquiry reconvened yesterday to consider an appeal against the refusal of Wycombe District Council to officially allow the retrospective application at the site at The Hedgerows. (See links below)
It started in June but was adjourned to consider an alternative site in Flackwell Heath.
A planning application was put forward by one of the travellers, Gerard O'Connor, for a site in The Nursery at 128, Heath End Road, but this was also refused by councillors last month.
Yesterday the appellants’ counsel Mr Masters said they had not had enough time to consider the reasons given by the council for refusing permission on the alternative scheme.
A request was put in for appeals for both sites to be dealt with at the same time, which has been accepted.
The inquiry was adjourned until a later date, which is yet to be confirmed, where the planning inspectorate will consider both appeals.
