Jimmy Nelson’s 106 new homes plan: decision tonight

PENDLE Council’s Development Management Committee meets this evening to determine three applications where area councillors have made decisions against the recommendations of planning officers.

Wednesday, 14th March 2012, 4:30 pm

The meeting at Nelson Town Hall will decide on plans to erect a 10kw wind turbine in Bracewell - refused by the West Craven Committee on grounds of visual amenity - retrospective plans to change the use of offices in Spring Lane, Colne, to a gym - approved by the Colne and District Committee as it had been operating for 18 months without complaints - and plans to build 106 homes on the former James Nelson’s sports field in Nelson, which the Nelson Committee turned down on grounds of access and highway safety.
