On 15th July all those who had contributed to the consultation received email notification that the application to develop Cothill Pitt had been withdrawn 'prior to determination'. No explanation has been given as to the reason for the withdrawal but the expected further supporting evidence from the developer has obviously not materialised.
The Save Cothill Pitt action group is absolutely delighted with the outcome. Within a day the SCP facebook post confirming the withdrawn planning application racked up over a 100 likes, 26 shares, 14 positive comments and reached over 4000 people! A reflection of just how much local support and value this special site holds.
While everyone is right to be pleased, SCP action group is realistic in thinking this is unlikely to be the end of the fight. The committee will continue to meet and seek support should any new applications be submitted.
