FHDC have not Informed NPCU

Paragraph 1.3 of the officer’s report that will be presented to the Overview & Scrutiny Committee and Cabinet next week states that the National Planning casework Unit have been notified of the current position in order that the Secretary of State can consider whether or not to call in the application.

The planning officer has just confirmed by email that this is not the case. Folkestone and Hythe District Council have not informed the National Planning Casework Unit that they are ready to issue the decision.
