Extension for the Submission of Comments

After lobbying from Bucknell, CDC have extended the deadline for making comments on the outline planning permission. 

The deadline is now 31 March 2022. Click here to directly access the planning application

Example Planning Comments

There are a great number of reasons why this planning application will be detrimental to the village of Bucknell.  Here are just a few:

  • Traffic, parking, highways;
  • Infrastructure
  • Water and Drainage
  • Air pollution
  • Light pollution
  • Loss of village identity
  • Noise
  • Flooding
  • Safety

It is important that you submit your comments using your own words.  If you would like to get some inspiration from what others have written, on the planning application page, click the tab “Supporting Docs” and scroll down to the heading “Public Comments”.    The submissions from Trigger Cottage (this is a link to the village website where you can see the full objection) are extremely thoroughly argued points and are worth a read. Each household can submit as many objections as they wish.

Developer’s Plan for Hawkwell Village

The developer for Hawkwell ‘Village’ held “public consultations” in 2021 - don’t worry if you missed them, hardly anyone knew …

Their website has had all material from the consultation taken down, so it’s not possible to view anything from them anymore.

We do have a copy of the presentation material that they have used - please click here for the file
