Second Application at Crown Nursery – Date set for the Planning Committee Meeting

Please note that Application DC/17/2512/OUT (for a 60 bed care home, up to 34 dwellings and industrial units at Crown Nursery on the High Street) will be discussed by the SCDC Planning Committee on Thursday 15th March, from 9.00am at Riduna House (opposite Melton Train Station).

The recommendation from the SCDC Officers is for the application to be refused. However, the committee do not always follow the recommendation so it is vital that as many Ufford residents as possible attend to show the strength of feeling against the application.

Unfortunately only few parties are permitted a 3 minute slot to speak at the actual meeting. The Parish Council and our District Councillor will speak strongly for the application to be refused and a member of the public can also speak, if they wish. If you would like to be that person, please contact the Parish Clerk (details below) in order that speeches can be co-ordinated. Although further individuals will not be permitted to speak, a robust presence will visually show the very strong opposition to this further development.

If you plan on attending the meeting we recommend you get to the office by 8.30am and be prepared for a long day!
