Snow Forces Postponement Of Council Planning Meeting


Administrative delays caused by the snow have led to the postponement of tonight’s (Tuesday’s) meeting of the Isle of Wight Council’s Planning Committee.

The Isle of Wight Council says adverse weather earlier this month affected the distribution of letters to people who commented on the planning applications.

Plans for Medina Yard, Cowes; Ryde School; Wootton Recreation Ground and Buckberry Lane, Newport were due to be considered.

The committee will now meet on Tuesday 27 March.

The local authority says it ensures the appropriate amount of time is given to make arrangements for people to speak at the meeting.

Chairman of planning, Councillor Chris Quirk, said:

“We’re sorry we’ve had to postpone Tuesday’s meeting but it’s critical we give potential speakers enough time and notice to be prepared.”
