Sheps. As long as I don't have to end up 'featuring' on Mike's website. :-/ GK.
Gaias- As I've said I will keep my fingers crossed. Apart from sending letters to the Parkies and local M.P.'s, there is not much more we can do.

OK I would say Granny.
RE: Re Appeal
Agreed in the legal definition the NYMNP is not a Local Authority. However it being an authority covering a specific area and it having power to make planning decisions within its boundary, on this issue I see no distinction. Because the NYMNPA has planning power in its area, like Local Authorities, it is also subject to National Planning Policy. NPPF guidance has to be adhered to by them. the constraints of the T&CPA also applies, this being a joint application to 2 authorities. NPAs also have the extra protection wrt Major Developments (ie this one) from the MDT, where a 'Need' test is applied to applications and where, if it came to appeal, decisions (inc the MDT assessment) will be judged as to whether they are legally 'reasonable'. The recent Localism Act modifies NPPF by adding in a 'presumption to support growth' (this will be applied to the 'need' test - 'need' covers any need for the nation) and a 'default that decisions should be arrived at locally'. That also means central gov do not publicly interfere in the planning process unnecessarily. Though it is very apparent from many reported conversation/statements that there is strong central support for this scheme and what it can bring. Your 'dictators' - as I suggested you have painted them - only make a recommendation. The Committee (as you point out) are appointed from central gov, the same gov that is supportive, and by the Borough/Parish councils in the area, they are also totally supportive to date. They will note the recommendation and vote as they like on a majority. But they are constrained in law. Those same Members are also subject to section 25 of the Localism act on predetermination and in law they must judge the scheme on its merit, within the national framework and do that reasonably. The Officers, who make the recommendation, are not subject to such constraints. So France can say what he likes........however unprofessional that may appear. Still, I'm sure he's aware of where his wages come from. GK.
