Subject: Local Members, Local MP, Newcastle Borough Council, Parish Councils, Action Group and Planning Committee – UPDATE 5/2/15 re: APPLICATION WITHDRAWN – Great Oak surface coal mine proposals, Bignall End, Newcastle under Lyme – N.14/03/2013 M
I wrote to the administrators for the applicant (Price Waterhouse Cooper) last week to try to establish the prospect of more information being received to enable us to determine the planning application submitted by UK Coal Surface Mines Ltd on 20 February 2014 to develop the Great Oak site, near Bignall End, Newcastle under Lyme (our ref. N.14/03/2013 M) (please note that the application status will update overnight).
I’m sure you will be interested to learn that I’ve now received a reply from Price Waterhouse Cooper who have WITHDRAWN the planning application. I’ve updated our Applications making the headlines web page accordingly.
I have therefore closed the planning application file on this matter.

In response to numerous complaints received by the Parish Council and a recent public meeting (October 2014), the following Parking Advice Notice has been produced jointly with Staffordshire Police and the Parish Council which will be put on vehicles causing a problem. This is a polite advisory notice (issued as the first step before penalty notices) to make people aware of the problems inconsiderate parking causes, in the hope that we can make the Parish a nicer place for those who live, work and learn here.
