Letter 2 – Sample – best used if you objected in 2010
East Devon District Council
Planning reference 11/1293/MOUT – Courtlands Cross, Lympstone
Regarding the above Outline Planning Application I wish to strongly OBJECT to this proposal. I objected in 2010 (10/0694/MOUT) to the previous application and I wish my previously expressed views to be read in conjunction with this objection.
1. There is no fundamental difference between this application and that submitted in March 2010 and consequently my previous objections still stand.
2. The removal of the nursing home is of no significance.
3. The road change to Courtlands Lane as proposed will merely increase the traffic along this restricted route as the shortest way to Lympstone Village and Lympstone Primary School . This will make this already dangerous route even worse.
4. The application in no way answers your reasons nos. 1 & 2 for refusal in 2010 since it still clearly breaches EDDC Policy.
5. The LDF Preferred Approach Appendix 1 supports the retention of the Green Wedge. Intended Government legislation such as DEFRA White Paper “The Natural Choice: Securing the Value of Nature”, The Localism Bill and Neighbourhood Plans would indicate support for the Green Wedge to be preserved.
It needs to made quite clear to the applicant that the objection is to any development on this land. Green Wedge status was intended to preserve this land against development and hence preserve the integrity of Lympstone Village from coalescence with Exmouth.
