Inquiry Attendance Information

Before deciding whether to take an active part in the Inquiry, you need to think carefully about the points you wish to make. All written submissions from application and appeal stage will be taken into account by the Inspector and re-stating the same points won’t add any additional weight to them. If you feel that taking part in the Inquiry is right for you in whatever capacity, you can participate in a number of ways:

To take part using video, participants will need to have access to Microsoft Teams (via an app or web browser). This link gives further information on how to use this. Alternatively you can take part by telephone. Please note that joining by telephone to the 020 number that will be used will incur charges. You should check actual rates with your provider.

If you wish to just observe the event, you should make that clear in your response to the Case Officer. If you wish to take an active part in the proceedings, please make clear in your response to the Case Officer whether you wish only to appear at the Inquiry and make a statement, or whether you would also wish to ask questions on particular topics.

If you want to take an active part but feel unable to for any reason, and/or the points you want to make are not covered in the evidence of others, consider whether someone else could raise them on your behalf.

Registered participants in whatever capacity will receive individual joining instructions, providing details of any requirements, guidance and support whether joining by Teams or telephone. You should note that the event will be recorded by the Planning Inspectorate for training and quality assurance purposes. Planning Inspectorate Reference:

Land South of Grange Park.

The planning application for 330 dwellings south of Grange Park has been determined by SNC. The Parish Council strongly objected to the application and we are pleased to announce that this met with some considerable success. 

At the recent  SNC Planning Meeting that was held on Thursday 6th February 2020, the Planning Committee, against the recommendation of their own Planning Officers, voted unanimously, with one abstention, to REJECT the application.

Our decision to appoint our own Planning Consultant proved to be the correct course of action. We would like to thank our Planning Consultants Nigel Ozier and Andrew Gray who did an amazing amount of work on our behalf. 

We would also like to thank our District Councillor, Bob Atkinson and our County Councillor, Michael Clarke who worked tirelessly to support our Objections.

 The work carried out and statements delivered  by District Councillors Andrew Grant ( Grange Park ) and Steve Hollowell ( Brafield and Yardley ) were of significant importance.

 Peter Shellard, on behalf of the Residents of Quinton, delivered an outstanding contribution to the objection before the Planning Committee on the day - thank you Peter.
