Many of you will know that The Stables in Wavendon near Milton Keynes has been engaged in a battle to protect its future from new housing developments being planned right on its boundary.
Disappointingly, due to the COVID-19 crisis, the public hearing previously offered by the Planning Inspectorate for the Abbey Homes appeal has been replaced with a written appeals procedure. This world class, much loved music venue has everything to lose and needs your support NOW!
The deadline for submissions is Friday 22 May.
If we make our voices heard, we can send the clearest message to the Planning Inspector that The Stables has overwhelming public support.
Please write NOW in support of The Stables and emphasise that the Council supported The Stables’ request for a deed of easement condition because it recognised the benefit of protecting both the venue and the future residents. Make your points strongly and concisely and demonstrate why it is vital to protect The Stables and why the appeal should be rejected. You might also want to express your personal experience of The Stables and focus on the personal impact it would have on you and the wider community or national music infrastructure if it were lost at some point in the future because the wrong decision was made now.
Submissions have to be made online on the PINS website – https://acp.planninginspectorate.gov.uk/
You will need to register first to be able to comment on the appeal as an interested party, and then search for appeal ref: 3246822
You can either upload a pre-written letter or add comments in the text box provided.
If you are submitting a letter you must include the following three pieces of information to identify which case you are making representation about:
- Appeal Reference: APP/Y0435/W/20/3246822
- Appeal by: Abbey Development Ltd
- Appeal Site Address: Land North and West of Wavendon Business Park, Milton Keynes
You may get a message along the way saying the deadline for submissions has passed – please ignore this and don’t be put off – we believe and hope that submissions can still be made.
