Planning Update

The following information has been supplied by the Resident’s Association Planning Sub-committee:

Hemley Hill Travellers Site
The Public Inquiry held at Wycombe District Council (WDC) on 22 May has been adjourned until
5 September because of controversy over the Proofs of Evidence, and that one of the Appellants had purchased land in Flackwell Heath which co-incidentally appears in the Baker Report on Gypsy & Traveller Sites in Bucks as a “gypsy site of significance”.

Walters Ash Travellers Site
The Judicial Review into the Hemley Hill Travellers’ Appeal that was held in the High Court was rejected on 8th May. The lawyers for the Appellant have informed WDC that they submitted Notice to Appeal on 6 June, 2 days after the 28 day deadline, but it is the discretion of the Civil Appeals Office to decide whether to accept the appeal, even though it is out of time. If the Court of Appeal refuses permission then that would leave no further avenues to pursue this matter in England but the Appellant can take the matter to the European Court of Human Rights.

Hopkins Yard
The Appeal against WDC’s refusal to grant planning permission for boundary fencing has been dismissed by the Planning Inspectorate.

Magnolia Sports & Social Club
WDC has refused planning permission for an indoor gym and outdoor fastlane pool.
