Leavesley appeal DISMISSED by Secretary of State

The Secretary of State has made a decision regarding the Leavesley appeal, and we’re very pleased to announce that it has been DISMISSED.

In a letter copied to Cholsey Parish Council, the Secretary of State has refused planning permission for the development proposed by Leavesley on Land off Papist Way (Ref. P21/S1503/O) and has upheld our Neighbourhood Plan.

This positive outcome wouldn’t have been possible without the support and dedication of everyone involved. We want to extend our thanks to:

  • Our amazing residents who joined the campaign
  • The ‘Rule 6’ team representing the Parish Council during the appeal process
  • The Neighbourhood Plan team who have worked so hard to keep our Plan up to date
  • SODC Planning who originally rejected the application and defended their decision during the appeal

Together, we made our voices heard – through written objections, petitions, postcards, protests, websites, posters, press coverage, and expert representations at the appeal inquiry.

Thank you to all involved!
