A decision on a controversial planning application in Wymondham will be made by early August, it has been announced.

Mid-Norfolk MP George Freeman today said that the final verdict on the application to build 70 homes on land overlooking Wymondham Abbey will be issued by August 8.

Communities secretary Eric Pickles will have the final say on the plans, after his department recovered the appeal.

Mr Freeman had written to the minister to ask him to “call-in” the decision as it would send a devastating message to the people of Wymondham and “signifcantly harm the landscape” of the abbey and the Tiffey Valley.

Last week the MP urged residents to get in touch with parliamentary under-secretary for planning Nick Boles to encourage the Department for Communities and Local Government to reject the Chapel Lane application.

To have your say, email nick.boles@communities.gsi.gov.uk quoting APP/L2630/13/2196884 or write to Nick Boles MP, Department for Communities and Local Government, Eland House, Bressenden Place, London, SW1E 5DU.
