Village Community Council response to 900 house Planning Application
However we are advised by SBC that the intial PA submission is the first part of a long approval process and that during the process they intend to achieve improvements for village centre and the local community. The local community will be involved in consultation at appropriate time.
Dear Ms Hayward,
Your ref 09/0I OOS/OUT
I write on behalf of Newtown & Eildon Community Council in response to the above noted planning application by Buccleuch Property and,Elphinstone Estates Ltd.
Having considered the outline planning application and the supporting Village Expansion Outline Masterplan, the Community Council objects to the planning application on the grounds that the proposals do nothing at all for the existing village of Newtown St.Boswells.
In reaching this decision to object to the planning application, the Community Council is mindful of the assurances made by the Director of Planning that regeneration of Newtown St.Boswells and meeting the villagers' aspirations, including a new village centre, would only be achieved through village expansion.
I hope that you will take account of our objection and reject this application.
Secretary, Newtown & Eildon Community Council
