Location: ‘The Meadow’ Gotherington, Gloucestershire
Planning Inspectorate ref: APP/G1630/W/20/3256319
Application ref: 19/01071/OUT
Appeal Start Date: 17 August 2020


Update 16th June 2020

Tewkesbury Borough Council planning committee have unanimously refused the application to build upon The Meadow.

Barton Willmore have once again submitted an application to build on ‘the Meadow’. This is an almost identical application to the one they submitted 3 years ago. On that occasion Tewkesbury Borough Council unanimously rejected the application. The application was then taken to the Planning Inspectorate under appeal, where once again the application was refused.

However planning is a moving feast and as such previous rejection does not mean this one will be rejected. We need everyone to make your voices heard.
