Gavin welcomes extension to Upper Landywood consultation

Gavin Williamson, MP for South Staffordshire, has welcomed the extension on a planning application for land off Upper Landywood.                                                                                                                      

Following an intervention by Gavin, the District Council has extended the time allowed for members of the public to object against the development on land off Upper Landywood Lane.

Time for commenting on the planning application had originally closed but has now been extended to 26th August.

The petition, which currently has around 1,500 signatures is expected to rise with this extension which has been created to stop planning for the development of over 100 new homes. This application follows two previous attempts to build on green belt in Landywood.

Gavin recently met with the District Council who transferred his petition to the Planning Committee and intervened on behalf of concerned residents on Upper Landywood Lane, Cheslyn Hay and Great Wyrley.

Gavin has urged others to join him in signing the petition to hopefully once and for all stop these attempts on building upon our Landywood Lane.

Following news of the intervention he commented: “I am so pleased that the District Council has allowed this extension for residents to voice their objection against this application.

“Action must be taken now so that this planning can be stopped with immediate effect. I urge all residents who haven’t done so already to register their objection so this application can be rejected.”
