Planning application 21/01670/FUL

The due date for a decision on planning application 21/01670/FUL was 1 September 2021 and the agreed expiry date was 15th October 2021. The website now notes that the Standard Consultation Expiry Date has been extended until 16 March 2022.

 In the absence of a decision by the due date, EPC has, over the past six months, been pressing for a decision to be made. However, this has proved fruitless and information about the application has not been forthcoming: for example, the planning website does not appear to include all correspondence between the case officer and the applicant/agent. This means that residents and the Parish Council have been unaware of what further information has been requested and what, if any, agreements have been reached to extend the consultation period and to delay the agreed expiry date.

 Against this backdrop, Eversley Parish Council (EPC) has written to very senior officers in Hart District Council to express its deep concern about the excessive delay in making a decision in this case, and the way it has been handled. The letter:

  • Asks if the planning officer has requested any further reports or information; and if he has, what is the deadline for response and the time-frame within which he will assess the responses.
  • Asks within what timeframe a decision will be made.
  • Expresses its disquiet at the Planning Authority’s lack of communication and transparency and the effect this has on residents’ trust in the planning process.

Given that all the necessary information appears to be to hand, EPC has expressed the view that it would not be unreasonable to expect a decision within the next week or two.”

Changes to the Highway Code

As of 29th January 2022, The Highway Code has changed. These advisory changes have been implemented to improve safety for people walking, cycling and horse riding.

Every road user still has a responsibility to keep themselves and each other safe, and the changes mean being ready to give priority, leave space and 
be considerate of others.

In summary, irrespective of your method of transport, a new hierarchy of road users has been introduced to ensure those who can do the greatest harm have the greatest responsibility to reduce the danger or threat they may pose to others.

This means:

  • Giving people crossing and waiting to cross and cyclists (or people cycling) going straight ahead priority when turning in and out of junctions
  • Giving plenty of space when passing people cycling and horse riders
  • And making sure we’re acting with responsibility and respect to all road users

Specifically: 

  • You now should give people crossing and waiting to cross and cyclists going straight ahead priority when turning in and out of junctions.
  • You now should leave at least 1.5 metres when overtaking people cycling at speeds of up to 30mph, and give them more space when overtaking at 
    higher speeds.
  • When driving, you should now pass horse riders and horse-drawn vehicles at speeds under 10 mph and allow at least 2 metres of space.
  • You should now allow at least 2 metres of space and keep to a low speed when passing a pedestrian who is walking in the road.
  • Car users should now open their doors with the hand furthest from the door, to help them look over their shoulder to see cyclists or pedestrians nearby.
  • People may cycle in the centre of the lane or two abreast for their own safety, whilst allowing others to overtake when it is safe for them to do so.
