As you know, South Gloucestershire Council held the Development Control (West) Committee meeting on Thursday 27th July 2017 to discuss (amongst others) the Barratts planning application PT16/6924/O. The meeting was really well attended with somewhere in the region of thirty Charfield residents present – there were so many people there they had to get extra chairs out! The Clerk re-presented the Parish Council’s objections to the application and Cllr. O’Neill reiterated objections. In case you didn’t know, the DC Committee voted unanimously to refuse the application! Below are some notes made by the Clerk – they are not extensive, just some of a salient points raised by the Planning Officer.

And yet apathy offers no solution, and simply presents no resistance to development plans that would double the number of homes and double the number of cars, but which in no way address the resulting congestion or the dearth of facilities such as schooling, medical or employment.
