The Yare Valley Society and the parishes of Colney and Cringleford have written to the South Norfolk Planning Department expressing concern over perceived deficiencies in the paperwork and possibly the processes relating to to Application 2019/1753: Discharge of Conditions for 2018/1830 – New Sports Facility at UEA, Colney Lane.
There is a joint concern that the documents relating to the application are less to be expected in a planning application.
As well as the existence of inaccuracies and confusing references, it would seem there is a case to answer as to whether substantive changes (e.g. tarmac instead of gravel, introduction of, and confusion over lighting) to the original application can be introduced at the stage of ”Discharge of Conditions”.
It is pointed out that if documentation relating to an application cannot be relied upon for accuracy or for following proper process, it cannot be subject to proper scrutiny by interested parties, and decisions made on the application are in danger of being unsound.
