Planning Granted
FIRLANDS Planning Application
90 houses called "Hollybush Oaks"
NEWS - JUNE 2015
Dear All,
It is with great disappointment that we have to advise that the appeal decision was found in favour of Pegasus - we have lost.
Outline Planning Permission has been granted for up to 90 dwellings.
Please refer to the attached notification.

Firlands Appeal Decision

We can take heart in the fact that we all had a hand in preventing the original Supermarket Scheme and likewise have helped in reducing the potential number of dwellings from the previous application by some 30%.
Due process is still required and more work to be done by Pegasus to convert the outline planning approval to full approval, so it should be some time yet before we see the first shovels breaking ground.
The Inspector did note in paragraph 66 of his report the high level of local opposition and acknowledged that there is a concern that the development could grow on the site beyond the 90 dwellings. However, he also states that he can only rule on the submission put before him. We think there is a strong likelihood that our battle will commence again at sometime in the future.
We thank all of you for your help and support over the last few years and wish you well.

Kindest of regards,
