Mickey Flynn’s Planning Application

Monday, November 3rd, 2014



The Mickey Flynn applications will be heard at 12.30 on Weds Nov 5 at the new single citywide Planning Committee, which has taken the place of the local Area Committees. The decision to change the structure was taken without consultation and further reduces the ability of local communities to be heard in the planning process. The Planning Committee will now meet at the Guildhall during the daytime, when many interested parties won’t be able to attend. Worse still is the fact that they are only allowing one speaker for and one against for a total of 3 minutes each.
We ask everyone to contact or phone 01223 457013 and register to speak no later than 12 noon on Tuesday. We want to show the extent of opposition to the potential use of this warehouse-sized unit as an A1 convenience store and its impact on the viability and vitality of the independent shops on Mill Road. Please register whether or not you are able to attend.
We are also holding a protest outside the Guildhall at 9am as the Councillors arrive for the morning session. Please join us
