Cambridgeshire County Council has requested and received agreement on a deadline extension which will put back any committee hearing to around April due to not yet having received the requested Environmental Impact Assessment. More consultation and publicity will need to take place once this report is actually produced by the developer.
I understand negotiations are taking place between Peterborough and Cambridgeshire regarding a joint planning committee hearing and that this decision will be taken from a Peterborough perspective by the Deputy Chair of the Planning and Environmental Committee in conjunction with the appropriate directors, officers and legal teams. As the Chair of this committee I will take no part in this decision due to my obvious predetermination against this application.
Please be assured that I along with our MP Shailesh Vara, and fellow Cllr’s Rush & Bisby stand ready to fight against this application at the committee hearing if planning officers decide to recommend approval.
