Appellant: Peel L&P Developments Ltd

Appeal reference: APP/H4315/W/20/3256871

On 29 July 2020 an appeal was made to the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government under Section 78(2) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended) against the failure of St Helens Borough Council to determine the above referenced planning application at Haydock Point within the statutory timeframes prescribed by the Town and Country Planning (Development Management Procedure) (England) Order 2015 and the Town and Country Planning (Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations 2011.

A Public Inquiry into the appeal proposals is to be held from 9 February 2021.

Following the submission of the appeal, as a result of concerns of the Council’s landscape officer and members of the planning committee, minor changes have been made to the appeal proposals.

As the appeal is to be determined by a Planning Inspector and not St Helens Borough Council, and it is necessary to ensure all parties have the opportunity to comment on the updated proposals, the appellant is making the updated documents available for comment for 28 days, between the dates of 24 December 2020 and 21 January 2021.
