Development Control Committee - 16 January 2019 (Power Court)

Sub heading


On Monday 11 March 2019 the council’s Development Control Committee will determine 2020 Developments’ planning application at Junction 10 of the M1 (Newlands Park) for a mixed-use gateway scheme incorporating offices, retail and leisure.​
 
Due to the unprecedented amount of public interest in this application, this page has been set up to provide:
  • a link to the live stream so people can watch the meeting online
  • information about the meeting at which this application will be determined
  • links to the agenda, report  and  recommendation
  • details on the  decision making process
  • answers to some frequently asked questions in relation to this application and the planning process in general

Watch this meeting live on Facebook

From 4pm on Monday 11 March, a link will appear in this space which will take you to the live stream.

As the meeting is expected to last more than four hours (maximum length for a Facebook live stream) there is likely to me more than one link - part 1, part 2 etc.

As long as a judge determines that the council has done everything properly on the process, then it cannot be referred for Judicial Review. Judicial Reviews are costly and time consuming.
