Mistley Parish Council – statement regarding planning application 18/00767/OUT, 21 November 2019
LAND TO THE NORTH OF STOUR VIEW CLOSE, MISTLEY: PLANNING CONSENT REFUSED – STATEMENT FROM MISTLEY PARISH COUNCIL
Mistley Parish Council is pleased and relieved to note the recent refusal of planning application number 18/00767/OUT for the proposed erection of up to 72 dwellings on land to the north of Stour View Close, Mistley, on the grounds of an insufficient Section 106 payment for the benefit of Mistley and its residents.
In cases of significant proposed development it is vital to Mistley that an appropriate S106 contribution is made, in order to provide amenities and improvements to the village.
While Tendring District Council is the LPA which makes final planning decisions, Mistley Parish Council is consulted during the process and can legally make comments on any planning or development matter in Mistley. To that end it is imperative that Mistley Parish Council is given sufficient time and opportunity to review and opine on each planning application made to Tendring District Council, where there is a direct or indirect impact on Mistley, regardless of the status of any such applications.
The Parish Council is committed to serving Mistley and always puts the interests of the parish and its residents foremost in its deliberations. It would like to take this opportunity to emphasise that it reviews each planning application it receives on the grounds of individual merit, reviewing several factors including the provision of an appropriate S106 contribution to the village.
