Our Planning problems regarding our Showground use at Battlesbridge have at last been resolved.
The Chelmsford City Council had issued an enforcement notice in September 2014 in respect of the land at Muggeridge Farm that we have used as a showground for many years. As you may be aware this notice was the subject of an appeal and public enquiry, with the planning inspector dismissing the appeal and upholding the Council's notice on December 5th. 2015.
We appealed against the planning inspector's decision to the High Court and on January 18th this year the High Court ordered that the inspector's decision be quashed as the inspector had made an error in law in finding that the use of land at Muggeridge Farm as a permanent showground had not become lawful.
Following legal advice taken by the Council they have accepted the argument that the land has become lawful as a permanent showground, and withdrawn the notice. Therefore the public enquiry scheduled for this month has been cancelled and our shows will be continuing next year as scheduled.
