Objecting to the planning applications

It is crucial that everyone objects to the planning application since realistically this is a VERY GOOD WAY for Sainsburys can be defeated.

BH2010/03967 for “advertisement” on the outside of the building. Decided, approved.

BH2011/00511 – submitted February 18 2011, now under consideration.

For – Sale by Retail of Alcohol, 09:00 – 19:00, Every Day
