MP Welcomes Planning Inspectors Decision

Pendle MP, Andrew Stephenson has welcomed the decision by the Planning Inspectorate to dismiss the appeal submitted by Seddon Homes to build 34 houses in Salterforth. Along with Councillors and residents Andrew was against the proposal, making the case it would have a detrimental impact on the local area.

Commenting on the outcome of the appeal Andrew Stephenson MP said, “I am pleased the Inspector has agreed with the view of the ward Councillors and local residents that the proposed application would have a detrimental impact on the village. We must ensure any new developments are in the right location to meet Pendle’s needs and not just forced onto Greenfields to suit the developers,”
