As you my be aware both Taylor Wimpey and Persimmon Homes have lodged appeals against Suffolk Coastal District Council’s decision to refuse planning permission for the large scale housing developments on Fairfield Road and Mount Pleasant.
Framlingham Residents’ Association has been doing some research into the best practice for fighting appeals and the advice we have from organisers of another successful campaign is as follows:
“Bristol are hugely influenced by the number of people objecting, so you definitely need to rally the troops and get people attending or writing in. You can’t rely on them taking account of any representations made at previous stages. When we got the East View development overturned, one of the things the inspector mentioned was the strength of the local opposition, so really worth doing that.”so….
1) Write individual letters AGAIN (even if you have written before).
2) One separate letter for EACH appeal.
3) Tell your neighbours and friends and get them to write as well.
Letters have to be with the Inspector by the 20 July 2015.
You must include on each letter the relevant Appeal Reference Number (see below).
Fairfield Road: APP/J3530/W/15/3011466
Mount Pleasant: APP/J3530/W/15/3011493
three copies of each letter (if in writing) to Helen Skinner, Room 3/26, Temple Quay House, 2 The Square, Bristol BS1 6PN

We will be in touch again at the end of the week with some specific points that you can include in your letters of objection.
