Following the submission of this application, Friends of Winchcombe held two public meetings when more than 100 people present at each one overwhelmingly voted against any level of support for this application.
Of the 26 letters of “so called” support listed against this application, 16 of them are photocopied letters with handwritten names and addresses added and many are either employees or tenants of Sudeley Castle!
While it’s customary for me now to list the planning reasons why this application should be rejected, three minutes is not sufficient, so perhaps instead I would prefer you to consider the long list of objectors to the application starting with the Consultees:
Conservation Officer - object
Landscape Officer - object
Urban Design Officer - object
Housing Enabling Officer - object
Historic England – object
County Highways Officer - object
CPRE – object
Moving on to other objectors:
Winchcombe Medical Centre
Lawrence Robertson MP
And FOW with whom I represent - Object!
As the FOW planning objections are all covered so eloquently by these professional bodies, I would respectfully ask this Committee to review these and refuse this application.
