Amenity Site application

This information was confirmed by the case officer, Bob Mills, at Somerset County Council this afternoon, Wednesday 21st October 2009. The application was withdrawn by the applicant's agent without further explanation.

Withdrawing an application in the face of a possible refusal is a strategic move on the part of the applicant. It allows the applicant the chance to restructure the application in the light of weaknesses or opposition.

This is only round one. Believe it!


PS 'Land for sale' sign adjacent to Canvin site at Badgers Cross does not refer to Canvin site. Appearance of sign clearly timed to cause consternation but relates to a separate part of the site with different owner.
