Willingdon Outline Planning Consent Granted
Catesby Estates Ltd have been successful in gaining outline planning consent at land north of Hazelwood Avenue, Willingdon. Wealden District Council granted consent for up to 390 dwellings, new sports pitches and allotments at the planning committee held on the 13th October 2016.
The application was submitted in May 2016 and the decision notice was issued the day after the committee meeting, some 5 months after submission. The site is not allocated within the adopted Local Plan and both officers and councillors recognised that the comprehensive benefits of the scheme far outweighed any harm. Local councillors complemented Catesby at the committee meeting for the thorough and comprehensive nature of the application.
