March 2023 Update – Ryde Appley and Elmfield Ward

March 26, 2023

Quote from local Appley and Elmfield Councillor Michael Lilley’s website, posted 26/3/2023:

It is hard to keep up with everything in the Ward and things I am involved in. Planning issues of Pennyfeathers and West Acre Park continue to dominate Ryde Appley and Elmfield and are long way off finding resolution and updates are below.

West Acre Park

On the 21st March 2023, after 20 months since the meeting of the 21st July 2021, the West Acre Park application came back to IW Planning Committee. It has now been deferred by the IW Planning Committee to its 25th April 2023 due to confusion, an error and the introduction of the word “entirety” by planning officers.

Pennyfeathers Reserved Planning Application came to IWC Planning Committee on 21s March 2022. The application for 900 houses is significant and time ran out at the meeting so it was deferred to a special meeting in two weeks’ time.
