4R Planning Appeal

4R Planning Appeal

This company doesn't seem to have got the message that we don't want them in our area and have decided to lodge an appeal with the Planning Inspectorate based in Bristol. This follows the decision of the East Riding Planning Committee to reject the application. As the planning authority for the area, the East Riding of  Yorkshire Council have written to objectors to inform them of the appeal and I have posted the letter below. As you will see, any representations made at the planning application stage will be taken into account by the Inspector and so there is no need to resubmit. However, residents can add to these should they wish, or amend what they sent in previously. The details are below. 

The Planning Inspector is an independent person who operates on behalf of the Secretary of State and any decision made by the Inspector is issued in the name of the Secretary of State. Normally, the Secretary of State plays no role in determining appeals but there is a provision for the Secretary of State to call an application in and make that decision himself. This is normally reserved for major planning applications of national importance but I am going to try to get this one called in anyway to be determined by the Secretary of State personally. I cannot guarantee I will succeed but I will do my best and even if I succeed that does not mean he is more or less likely to reject the application than the Inspector might be. 



If you wish to make comments, or modify/withdraw your previous representation this must be done by 11 October 2019. You can do this online at or you can write to the Inspectorate (quoting their reference APP/E2001/W/19/3234626) at , Room 3N, Temple Quay House, 2 The Square, Bristol, BS1 6PN.

Please address all correspondence to the Planning Inspectorate. The appeal documents submitted by the appellant can be inspected on the council’s public access website at quoting our reference 19/00055/REFUSE. If you require further information on the appeal process, guidance can be found at
