Planning Inquiry for the Proposed 221 Houses at the Fitz Starts Today

The planning inquiry for the large housing development on the outskirts of Cockermouth started today but was ajourned after about one and a half hours of proceedings due to a procedural problem. The exact details are not clear as to how and why correct consultation was not carried out for amended plans submitted by the appellant. The Trust are one of the none statutory consultees so no doubt all will become apparent in the near future.

In the meantime we have gained a little more press coverage on both Radio Cumbria and the BBC website.
