Worth noting that they said they couldn't "fully support" the project. That's not exactly the same as being completely opposed. I'm guessing this is the start of a negotiation.

Very strange imo to submit the application, follow up on the decision and then not resubmit. In my experience, for anything potentially conroversial developers like to slip in the outline app to help guide the full app. I can only guess the developers feel they received enough info from the Council and consultees to think there aren't any major obstacles. My guess is the application in some form will be approved should Keiser want to carry on. As always, I am keen to read the officer recommendation. I am often amazed at how much of a dark art that is the UK planning system.As an aside...I am surprised by the 805 acres...is that a starting point whose number will be cut through negotiation? Ciao

Ian I appreciate youre a stooge for the developer but perhaps you could give some thought before you spout such shite. Unlike the US we dont have a gun culture over here. Anyone wandering about discharging a loaded firearm in an area open and relatively accessible to the public is likely to get their collar felt fairly quickly, particularly if they dont have the consent of the landowner.
