Following previous deferment, the four large planning applications in Waltham are now to be heard by the Planning Committee meeting on 17 October at 6pm. The papers have already been issued and a pack can be seen by clicking on this link: More »


You will see that the officer's recommendation is PERMIT for all four cases - disappointing! The timing of this special meeting is also especially galling as our Neighbourhood Plan is due to conclude its examination by 3 November after which it will carry much greater weight. If all the applications are approved, this will double the size of Waltham. So, as before, it would be much appreciated if all concerned parishioners attend to show solidarity. I look forward to seeing you there.

Regards, Martin
