It would be a huge shame if the club are no further down the line than they were in Jan/Feb following Harris’ and the Council’s positive words.
Pre planning application is not a Statutory requirement.
It's a facility that can be used to gauge an opinion from a planning officer but is not a guarantee of success or failure when a full application is submitted. Sketch proposals would be submitted with photos of the site etc.
The benefit to an applicant is to get an opinion on a proposal without having to have the expense of full plans and proposals being drawn up which could be rejected. Responses from planners are unfortunately slow.
On a scheme like The Groves, it is more than likely that a meeting with a Senior Planner would be arranged to discuss the proposal. Getting the local councillors on board is a real bonus.
