The Cockburn Association has allowed us to publish their extremely extensive and well-written objection to the enabling development argument for the Craighouse planning application.
The letter specifically emphasizes the official guidance that the council planners are following on enabling development, which states:
“if applicants are unwilling to supply the very information that is the foundation of their case for overriding normal planning policies, refusal becomes all but inevitable. If the case goes to appeal, all relevant information will become public; no evidence can be treated on a confidential basis.”
We thank the Cockburn Association for their extremely detailed, well-written and well-researched letter. We also think that this letter is a very good contribution to the wider debate on enabling development in general.
