West Acre Park
See West Acre Park Planning Application Update | Michael Lilley and West Acre Park planning application stalled due to concerns over impact on Solent waders and migrating birds (onthewight.com) for my latest update and my latest statement. The current position is the application has been referred back to IWC Planning Committee and now the earliest time for this to happen is 30th January 2023. The Developer and Natural England have as yet not resolved Natural England’s concerns about the issue of houses being built on Solent Waders and Migration birds feeding grounds. As consent cannot be issued until this matter is resolved and the resolution is agreed by IWC Planning Committee, residents’ lawyers cannot apply for Judicial Review. Please see Save Westridge Farm Campaign (crowdjustice.com) – Funds are still being sought to continue the fight and a very strong case continues to be developed. I wish to thank all those residents that are leading on this. A report by planning officers as yet has not been written but it has been confirmed to me that only I as IWC ward councillor will be able to speak when it comes back to committee which I will do. If approved (it may not be) then consent will be issued and then residents’ lawyers will have 6 weeks to file to the court requesting Judicial Review. My latest statement on my website clearly states my feelings about the case.
The Pennyfeathers reserved matters report due to go IWC Planning Committee has yet to be finalised and now will go to committee in January/February but is very fluid.
