Bonby and Haxey Planning Applications

Andrew has provided the following update on two planning applications in North Lincolnshire that were determined yesterday. 

Andrew reports, "North Lincs Council's Planning Committee yesterday determined two planning applications a number of residents locally have contacted me on; one for a chicken farm in Bonby and one to build houses on the Duke William site in Haxey. 

"Although I have no formal role in planning applications, I submitted objections to both of these and I am pleased to report that Councillors voted against granting permission for either of them. 
There were considerable concerns about the smells and scale of the chicken farm in Bonby which Councillors concurred with. 

"In terms of the Duke William in Haxey, the pubs there are of course integral to the Haxey Hood and the active local residents group are keen to see the pub brought back into use as a viable business, even possibly a community ran pub. 

"Whilst Council officers recommended approval of the housing plans, Councillors (except some Labour Councillors who supported the plans) decided to support the concerns of residents and reject the application. 

"These rejections are of course subject to appeals to the Independent Planning Inspectorate should the applicants decide."
