PRESS RELEASE - 5/7 High Street, Bembridge Planning Application

Bembridge Parish Council agreed at an Extraordinary Council meeting on Tuesday 23rd May to withdraw the planning application at 5/7 High Street. This was due to information from the Isle of Wight Council Planning Officer that suggests there would be a recommendation to refuse the application on the grounds that it didn’t comply with the Bembridge Neighbourhood Development Plan or the housing needs survey.

Recent events within Bembridge have seen a majority of new Councillors elected on 4th May with a mandate to save 5/7 High Street and the withdrawal of this planning application will help draw a line under the emotive months preceding the election.

Bembridge Parish Council held a productive meeting with Councillors working together for the good of the community and many resolutions were passed unanimously.
