Latest News Regarding Gladmans Appeal
The planning enquiry has been postponed due to an environmental issue at Stodmarsh Water Reserve which is affecting all potential small developments in the area.
Canterbury City Council has received advice from Natural England that will have an immediate impact on the determination of current planning applications for new homes within the Canterbury and Herne Bay areas.
The Stodmarsh Nature Reserve is protected under European law and is managed by Natural England. It believes water quality in the lakes has deteriorated. At the same time, water quality targets have been made more onerous.
This means before CCC approve any new housing development within the River Stour catchment area or that would discharge wastewater into it, applicants for planning permission need to satisfy Natural England they have made sure there are enough mitigation measures in place to stop this happening.
CCC are currently investigating possible solutions, but there will need to be a temporary halt to granting planning permission for new homes on smaller sites within the catchment while they work with Natural England to agree a solution for planning applications on smaller sites. CCC will keep us informed on the progress.
For the larger housing sites, CCC have already identified a way forward which means that there will be no delay to planning applications affecting the bigger, or strategic, sites.
