Countryside submits appeal to Planning Inspectorate

Countryside has this week submitted an appeal to the Planning Inspectorate against Rochford District Council’s refusal of the outline planning application for the site west of Rayleigh.

Andrew Carrington, Managing Director of Strategic Land at Countryside said: “The site at Rayleigh has already been allocated for housing and was recommended for approval by planning officers and as such we felt we were left with little option but to appeal the unsubstantiated grounds for refusal, which were not supported by the evidence.”

It is not yet known when the outcome of the appeal can be expected.
