Mr. Johnathan Turner appealed to the Planning Inspectorate against the Calderdale Council’s June 3 decision to issue an execution on the use of the Stanley Works site, Lucy Street, Halifax, for violation of the to build.
The council says it has issued the notice due to violations of planning permission granted in 1990 to use part of the site as a waste transfer station, subject to conditions including limitations as to the type of material that can be stored there and at the height at which it can be stored at.
Approved materials are described in the authorization as “materials associated with construction operations (builders’ rubble) or excavation waste or topsoil”.
Breaches include material stored outside the authorized area and above the authorized height.
The nature of the material constitutes another breach, specifies the town hall, including green waste, wood, metals, plastic and a general dumpster.
Mr. Turner appealed against the formal notice on the grounds that the deadline for complying with the formal notice was too short.
The council notice states that within three months from the date the notice was issued, the appellant must cease storing unapproved waste on unapproved parts of the site or at an unapproved height and remove all materials that violate the building permit in this way.
Mr Turner says in practical terms that this means that the specified material must be removed from its current location and be removed from the site.
The existing waste transfer building at the site does not have the capacity to take the material and a more reasonable time to comply with the notice would be 12 months, he said.
The appeal will be determined by written representations. Comments can be submitted on the issue via email [email protected] uk or by sending three copies in writing to Maisie Milton-Newland, The Planning Inspectorate, Room 3A Eagle, Temple Quay House, 2 The Square, Bristol, BS1 6PN. The reference number for the appeal is APP / A4710 / C / 21/3278053.
All representation mists must be received by the Inspectorate by October 15, 2021 – all responses will be copied to the appellant and the local planning authority and will be reviewed by the inspector determining the call.
