Appeals against the Non Determination of the 2016 applications were received October 2016. 

The Public Inquiry, which considered all of the appeals, took place in November 2016.  Throughout the course of the appeal and as a result of ongoing discussions between the Council and the Appellants the appeals relating to St Osyth Priory were withdrawn resulting in the Public Inquiry closing early.

This was because the appellants committed to enter into a legal agreement which meets the terms of the Planning Committee’s resolution enabling a conditional planning permission to be granted for application reference 16/00656/FUL and 16/00671/FUL.

Discussions are ongoing between the Council and the Applicants.
