Planning Update

On Monday evening, the application to change the pedestrian/cycle crossing
of the A417 for Pye 3 to a pedestrian-only crossing due to lack of sufficient space,
was heard by the Vale Planning Committee.
Our own Dr John Sharp and Mark Beddow spoke against the proposal because
of the dangerously narrow proposed walkway along the side of Mather House.
The Planning Committee agreed and rejected the application.
Following this, Pye Homes have withdrawn the application.
We await further developments in the hope that a safer solution will be found!
