Top Politician Set To Decide Rolleston Planning App
It has been announced that the Secretary of State for communities and local government will now decide the fate of this controversial planning appeal. Andrew Griffiths MP has received written confirmation that Eric Pickles would now have the final say on the College Fields application in Rolleston, after a four-day hearing decided to uphold East Staffordshire Borough Councilís decision to refuse the planning application.

Update: The Secretary of State is not in a position to reach a decision by the previously advised date of 14 July 2014, and will now issue his decision on or before 26 August 2014.
Both the threat and the reality of large scale developments within the village and surrounding areas is never far away. Read more about it in the planning section pages.
