Cowthick Plantation Logistics Park – Planning Application 18/00817/OUT
Throughout the year we have been engaged with other local parish councils in a concerted effort to have this application refused. Corby Council’s Development Control Committee (DCC) were initially scheduled to meet to discuss the application on 23 March 2020, at the Council Chamber, Corby Cube; with a great deal of lobbying we were able to have the meeting deferred until 23 June 2020, by which time virtual meetings were in place and we were able to represent the views of the Village. Due to the number of objections raised, some of which were submitted late in the day, the meeting was opened and adjourned until the 29 June 2020. The meeting finally took place at 7 pm on 29 June and we made our representation on behalf of the Village, strongly opposing the application.
The DCC then approved the application, as recommended by Corby Planning Officers.
However, this is not the end of the matter. Subsequent to the meeting a number of representations were made in respect of the conduct of the meeting, and some regarding procedural errors. Post the meeting, Corby Borough Council issued a further Public Notice in respect of the application, inviting further comment, we therefore submitted a further letter of objection raising a number of issues and concerns.
In addition to submitting a further objection to Corby Borough Council, we have written to the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, requesting that he call-in the application for his consideration. If his Office deems this appropriate then the matter would receive a high level of detailed scrutiny. A number of other villages and parishes along the A6116 and the A43 have also submitted requests to the Secretary of State for him to call-in the application.
We have had some complaints in relation to villagers and their visitors parking on grass verges and conservation areas. Can we please ask that everyone living in or visiting the village to not park on and be respectful of these areas.
Dog fouling is at an all time high that affects most villages in the county. We have many reports of dog mess around the area of the football pitch adjacent to the village hall and on the paths around the village.
This is particularly disappointing as we have provided these extra bins to make it easy and convenient for dog owners to dispose of dog mess safely, for the benefit of everyone.
The refusal of some owners to clean up after their dog and to make full use of the waste bins provided, indicates that the behaviour is determined by the attitude of the owner and not by any prevailing environmental or other conditions.
So, we ask once again that all dog owners act responsibly, consider other residents, and especially children, and clean up after their dog wherever that might be in the village, and dispose of the dog mess in the bins provided for that purpose.
