Almost choked on my fish fingers at tea time when I read in the local rag that this over the top planning application for Washpit Mills had been knocked back by the planning inspector.
The consultation process ended in April this year and the impatient developer chose, mistakenly, to go to appeal rather than wait for Kirklees to cogitate and come to a decision. Rather amusingly the clearly peed off developer is quoted as saying “I have no idea what’s going on,I really don’t know what you have to do to get something approved by Kirklees Council” Might be time for a change of direction job wise mate!
There is a public right of way right through the site but not one recorded as yet on the Definitive Map. In typical developer’s style the route was blocked off as soon as the site was acquired so my sympathy for the hapless developer is …well..zero to be honest. But it’s a nice start to the weekend.
