Application by CALA Homes (South) Ltd

Site at Boundary Hall Site, Aldermaston Road, Tadley, RG26 4QH

Thank you for your letter dated March 12th about the planning application for housing at the Boundary Hall Site in Aldermaston Road, Tadley in my North West Hants constituency.

My view is that it is a misuse of resources for this land to lie idle; that there is a proven need for more housing in the area, and that consent to develop this land for housing should be granted, notwithstanding the issues that have been raised by HSE.

Yours sincerely

Sir George Young

I am writing to let you know that the Secretary of State has decided to exercise his powers in section 77 of the 1990 Act. This means that he will determine this planning application instead of Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council.
The application is being dealt with by the inquiry procedure. The inquiry will be held by a Planning Inspector. I am the case officer for this case. The Planning Inspectorate will make all the necessary arrangements for the inquiry and any other procedural matters.
Please note that the Government Office cannot forward any correspondence that was submitted to them before this case was called in. Therefore, if there are any matters which you wish to put before the Inspector, would you please write to me at this address quoting reference APP/H1705/V/10/2124548. You must make sure I receive 3 copies of these representations. It would be helpful to receive these by 23 April 2010.
Please note that I will not normally acknowledge any correspondence unless specifically asked to do so.
Should you have any queries regarding this case, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Yours sincerely

Alan Ridley
