FOI Disclosure Log

Customer Request Details

11 August 2020

I understand that details of pre-application advice provided by the Council/planning department, to e.g. property developers, is available to members of the public by virtue of the Freedom of Information Act. 


I am particularly interested to know of any pre-application advice provided to Osprey Homes (or its affiliate Beechwood Homes) and its agents regarding their new plans to develop on the Glebe Field on North Drive in High Cross.  This developer had previously applied for full planning permission for this site (3/17/0251/FUL) but those plans were ultimately rejected by the Planning Inspectorate and I understand the developer now wants to submit a new application and may have already received pre-application advice in respect thereof.


Please could you confirm that the above request for information can be processed or let me know if you require further information from me.
