Kingsland Laines, Sayers Common - housing decision
11th December 2017


The Secretary of State had allowed permission for 120 houses at Kingsland Laines, Sayers Common. This follows a lengthy process in which the Parish Council argued against the application, saying that this number was more than required by our Neighbourhood Plan. Planning permission had previously been granted for 40 houses on the same site, so this latest decision permits a further 80.
