Morello Garth Planning Application-Please see the link below

BARLOW PARISH COUNCIL: COMMENTS ON MORELLO GARTH: PLANNING APPLICATION REF: 2018/0016/FULM Submitted to Selby District Council 26th January 2018 

At the Parish Council meeting held on Tuesday 30th May 2018, the Council received an update from District Councillors regarding the Morello Garth planning application. The application has not been before the planning committee as yet because officers have told the applicant that, in its current form, the application is so substantially different from the outline permission granted in 2016 that it has no chance of being approved.  

The responsible planning officer has chosen to leave the application “open” to give the applicant the opportunity to amend his plans to be more in line with the outline permission and discussions in this regard are ongoing.

Following a small number of incidents relating to dog fouling, the Parish Council would like to clarify both the legal position and our policy with regards to the issue. Please click here for further info.
