Planning permission refused

The planning committee of South Lakeland District Council refused permission for the development off Longmeadow Lane on Thursday. "The most outrageous planning application I've heard in my time on the planning committee" was one  comment. “The only way to get access to this site would be by helipad or a new railway station” was another. David Peters, Collin Mansfield and Keith Jackson spoke for those who wanted the application refused. Oakmere Homes sought to defer the decision while they found more evidence, but this was refused as well.
