Some new documents have been added to the NLC website for the house. The final approval subject to conditions document is NLC Decision Notice. This is fairly strict in its conditions and we should be quite proud of the fact we’ve managed to get a lot of these things added to the conditions.
Remember that these all have to be stuck to and watched over. We don’t want it getting to a stage where they decide one area might not be good for them and they miss it out. It’s still up to us to keep an eye on this stuff.
Our request being rejected to have the hearing in Cumbernauld is here. Weirdly 4 different men’s names are on the letter. We have Tom Gaffney’s email address, John Fleming in the header and John O’Hagan in the footer! Strange though that the person who actually signed it off’s name is blanked out. There is another name (S.Linton) which appears on there also. How confusing is that? Who actually replied to us…? Strange one that. They are not exactly making it easy to see who made the decision are they? We’re not insinuating anything from this just that it’s another example of committees within committees and confusing bureaucracy.
Interesting though that there was also an email added up onto the site which contained documentation from the end of January which was the internal recommendations from the planning committee as far back as that. The recommendations that were put in place don’t go as a far as this document. You can access that document here which is on the other application page. We’re concerned why this document was not put up till after the application process. Would have been nice to have this document before the hearing.
Lots of docs have gone up recently – well worth a look on both areas if you want to monitor the progress now.
Remember guys – this has happened before to the house and come to nothing. If we stop and give up now we’ll be kicking ourselves in a couple of years when it’s sitting empty again. We’ve got a lot of work still to do.
