Town Council representation to Land at Candlet Road appeal

Posted by Town Hall Staff 28 January 2016

An appeal has been made to the Secretary of State by Christ Church Land & Estates (Felixstowe) Ltd against the decision of Suffolk Coastal District Council to refuse planning permission for Application for Outline Planning Permission for up to 560 dwellings, including a Local Community Centre, a 60 Bedroom extra Care Home and 50 assisted Assisted Living Units, 2 small Business Units and open space provision with associated Infrastructure at Land at Candlet Road, Felixstowe.

The Secretary of State has, with the consent of the parties concerned, agreed to determine the appeal at a Public Inquiry, the date for which has still to be arranged.

At its meeting of 27 January 2015, Felixstowe Town Council’s Planning & Environment Committee reviewed its earlier recommendation, made on 22 April 2015, that the application should be refused.

Committee endorsed its original recommendations and resolved to submit supporting information and evidence to the Planning Inspector in respect of this appeal. It is the view of Felixstowe Town Council that the appeal should be dismissed.

A letter outlining the Town Council’s objections was submitted today, a copy of which can be seen here.
