The threat of judicial review has delayed decisions on two planning applications for housing developments in Kentford.

The threat of judicial review has delayed decisions on two planning applications for housing developments in Kentford.

Forest Heath District Council’s development control committee had been due to determine three applications last Wednesday. These include an application for 88 houses east of Gazeley Road, and plans for 60 homes on land adjacent to Herringswell Road.

A further application for 16 dwellings at Bury Road was withdrawn by the applicant.

A spokesperson for Forest Heath District Council said: “The Council has received notice of a potential challenge of Judicial Review in relation to all of these applications. The Council is taking legal advice on this matter to ensure that the Committee are provided with the appropriate level of information and advice.”

The two remaining applications will be determined in February.

An application for 102 homes at Meddler Stud, Kentford, was dismissed on appeal last month as the planning inspectorate deemed it to be unsuitable for the village and detrimental to the horse racing industry.
