Planning appeal lodged on the ‘eastern-annexe’

On the 7th November, although it has not yet been activated, David Fielder’s associate Justin Claybourn lodged an appeal against the refusal of his planning application on the ‘eastern-annexe’ of the Henry Jenkins with the Planning Inspectorate in Bristol. When activated, after due process, a Planning Inspector will adjudicate at a formal Hearing at the HBC offices in Harrogate. Prior to this the public will be invited to make representations for and against the appeal.
We hope that all members of the HJCP and other residents of the parish will rally to the cause and object to this particular application by Mr Claybourn and all other planning applications which seek to change the wonderful Henry Jenkins Inn, which has served Kirkby Malzeard for nigh on 200 years, into domestic dwellings. It is difficult to see how the Planning Inspector could reasonably grant the appeal when faced opposed by 200+ letters and by a comprehensive, fully worked-out business plan for the regeneration and refurbishment of our ancient landmark.
The HJCP will keep members fully updated as to the progress of the Appeal and full details of how and when to forward any submissions.
