We have been informed by Burford Town Council that the developers have withdrawn their appeal against refusal of planning permission to develop Cole's Field. The appeal was lodged some time ago after WODC turned down the latest planning application but we understand that the developers, Greystoke, had taken their time about filing their detailed grounds for appeal; also that they were hoping to have the appeal determined by a planning inspector on the basis of documents only rather than going through a formal court-style hearing. Now they seem to have decided to throw in the towel.
However this does not prevent them for making (yet) another application for a different type of development, or stop another developer having a go.
We hope to have more news about this in the next few days.
