Valerie Scott, Chair of Bigbury’s Neighbourhood Planning Group, has asked that her letter to Matt Jones (SHDC, Planning Officer), on the topic of the proposed demolition of Warren Cottage and Bay View Cafe, be made publicly available – as follows. Valerie’s diligence sets a fine example of the standards that we ought to be able to expect from all Development Management staff working for our District Council.

I have just looked at the Council’s application website and the ability to comment on line in respect of the new information provided by the applicants seems to be unavailable although I have been advised that further comments can be made. I am therefore sending my further comments to you by email and would advise you that the Bigbury Parish Council have also commissioned a report from JFA Ecology which will be sent to you early next week.
The further comments which I have relate to all three applications 0430/18/PAD, 0406/18/PAD and 0470/18/PAA and in particular to the letter sent by Ashfords dated 27 February 2018 and the Southwest Knotweed Report dated 21 February 2015.
As you will see I am still concerned about the proposed demolition of these buildings prior to the eradication of the Japanese Knotweed. This latest report does not provide any further evidence about the likely extent of Japanese knotweed on the site and without this knowledge demolition should not be allowed. I am particularly surprised that Southwest Knotweed refer only to the Acorn Ecology Report dated August 2015 with no reference to the Environet October 2015 Report which showed the extent of Japanese knotweed to be considerably more extensive. The lack of any reference to this report is also of concern as it is possible that the landowner has not advised Southwest Knotweed of the existence of this later and more detailed report. The applicants have also not submitted or referred to the Environet Report in their earlier submissions and failed to address the issues raised in this report despite the repeated references which have been made to it in our representations.
Please could you place these further representations on your website and ensure that access to the comments box on the application website is made available for other people to be able to make representations. Please acknowledge receipt.
