THE HIGH court has turned down a judicial review into the handling of a planning application for a very sheltered housing scheme.
The move means the controversial purpose built development earmarked for Bentley Lane, Stutton, can now go ahead. The development is for elderly people unable to cope alone.
Richard Watson, head of planning control at Babergh District Council was delighted with the result and said:
"We are pleased that the High Court agreed that there was no case for Babergh to answer as the planning authority and that we had been totally scrupulous in our procedures."
