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 Council’s decision to refuse the planning application. A report is now being prepared by the Planning Inspectorate, which will be presented to Mr Pickles before he makes his final decision. Read more in the Burton Mail article (24 March) here.
