Yesterday, I received word friend who works for WFDC that the Shenstone site was no longer on the agenda for last night's council planning meeting as it has been withdrawn by the applicant.
If this is just a temporary reprieve I have yet to find out. It may be just a tactic of the developer to withdraw an application as they don't feel that all the t's are crossed and i's are dotted. They could well resubmit it at a later date rather than face an outright refusal. Then again, perhaps they will withdraw to cut their losses.
For now it is at least a slight respite coming into the bird's breeding season. I will keep you posted as I hear more.
