Dixies Meadow -NHC have extended the response deadline to 07 May

Following a request from the Parish Council the NHC Planning Officer has said-

I am happy to extend the date on the website for an additional 2 weeks. So the new closing date will be 7th May. But please let people know that the quicker I get all the comments the better so I can read through and flag up any potential issues that may need additional work.

 At the meeting on 8th April the Parish Council voted to object to the application and is currently formulating its detailed response to the Planning Officer.
