Councillor Brian is supporting Westone residents


 Just because it has been built doesn't make it right !

Westone Liberal Democrat Borough Councillor Brian Markham supports local resident's objection to hotel extension.

People living near to Westone Manor Hotel have sent in letters and organised a petition against a Retrospective Planning Application for additional bedrooms at the hotel. The new application comes after the owner ignored a previous consent and went ahead with building something twice the size agreed .

Brian says " I realise that refusal of the new application may cause difficulties for the hotel but I am convinced if what has been built had  been included in the previous plans  then it would have been refused or at least scaled back. Just because it has been built doesn't make it right".

Cllr. Markham is asking that the matter be referred to Planning Committee for a decision rather than decided by officers. "Given the level of local interest in the matter I think that it is only right that people should be able to air their views in public".
