H49 Planning Appeal by Springfield

This post is just to keep everyone in our community aware of the current status of the formal Planning Appeal, submitted by Springfield, relating to site H49.

Further to the submission by Springfield of a formal appeal, multiple documents have now been uploaded onto the Planning and Environment Appeals Division (DPEA) website. However, currently, the case is indicated as ‘ Not yet ready for allocation to reporter’, although this is likely to change, moving forward. The case number is: PPA-150-2008 (Planning Permission Appeal).

MCC has concerns about what has, and what has not, been posted, to date, and is seeking clarification, on a number of matters, with the parties involved.

It is still early days in the overall appeal process, in particular, given the current situation regarding COVID-19. However, we anticipate more information on the next steps will come forward, once a Reporter has been appointed.

You can access and view the documents and communications submitted regarding the Appeal, on the DPEA website, via the following link:

MCC will issue a further update, once we have been advised of the next steps in the process.
