Poor Laird. He does not seem to have much luck with his development schemes. The latest for two bijou modest villas on the fringes of Paxton Village have been given a (very prompt) thumbsdown by the Planning Gauleiters. Just 'Application Refused' That's it- on the Planning website: This seems to have been in the wake of of a site visit by a planning officer during which it would have been quickly seen that the application was slightly flawed in detail: for 'scrub land' read 'small wood' Lack of attention to detail as one of my former Ambassadors used to say.
The decision level was the Berwickshire Area Committee. Grounds for refusal are not recorded on this site.
But one can hazard a guess that 'out with the local plan-building in the countryside' may have been something to do with it. Never mind the potentially vanishing wee wood.
Where next? One wonders
