Nocton Dairies Limited

Good morning blog readers.  In light of the 'topic of the moment', I thought I'd have a look at how our local Planning Committee functions within North Kesteven District Council.  If you'd like to know more, click here:

It seems any person interested in a particular planning application can view a copy of the Planning Committee Report before the Hearing, please see here:

I see a provisional meeting has been booked for Tuesday 27th April 2010 at 5.00pm. From the list of expected attendees, it seems to me both 'Eastgate' and 'Lafford' Councillors will be attending.  This will probably refer to the emotive Nocton Dairies Ltd planning application... but I could be wrong.  Watch this space:
