Westfield Farm Planning Application - Latest News
Having lost the South Cave and Holme-on-Spalding Moor appeals, Gladman DID plan to appeal against the Westfield Farm rejection at the last minute on Oct 21. When ERYC pointed out their grounds for appeal for were no different to the previous 2 appeals they lost (and had to cover all costs) Gladman finally agreed to drop the Westfield Farm application ! Thanks to our Ward Councillors, the SAG group, and all villagers who fought this application. ERYC appear to be mounting a robust and effective defence of the Local Plan.

Gladman Developments ordered to pay costs of a planning appeal
Gladman (who applied to build on Westfield farm) have been ordered to pay ERYC for costs in a recent appeal of theirs at Holme-on-Spalding Moor. Planning Practice Guidance advises that costs may be awarded against a party who has behaved unreasonably and thereby caused the party applying for costs to incur unnecessary or wasted expense in the appeal process. See full statement by Planning Inspectorate (pdf)
