East Northants District Council Development Control Committee decided, about half an hour ago, to refuse planning permission for a 70 holiday cabin development at Fineshade Wood. I think it was 11 against and one abstention with none in favour (2 members absent and the Chair and Vice chair not voting).
The grounds for refusal were the ecological ones – loss of irreplaceable habitat.
More on this tomorrow morning. It was the Dormice (and their habitat) what won it!
