As you are probably aware, the developers appealed against CBC’s decision to refuse planning on the land at Bower Lane.
First of all, we wanted to share the great news that the appeal has been dismissed by the Planning Inspectorate!
At the same time; we also wanted to say a massive thank-you to everyone that supported this campaign over the last two years!
From the incredible number of objections written to CBC by local residents and the support for the open letter, the amazing turn-out we had at the hearing and the help we received from both the Campaign for Rural England (CPRE) and Eaton Bray Parish Council; they all played their part in this final decision.
If you want to read the full judgement, you can download it from the link below, but to summarise the key points of the decision focused on the loss of openness and visual impact, the function of the land as a local gap in order to stop Eaton Bray and Edlesborough merging, the change to the character of the site and the environmental impact this development would have on our countryside.
