Last year Canterbury City Councillors rejected the beach safety assessment submitted by the Whitstable Oyster Fisheries Company as a condition of their retrospective planning application to erect trestles on the beach. The failure to agree this beach safety assessment invalidated the WOFC planning permission and could mean the company are forced to remove trestles landward of the mean tide line.
The WOFC are now submitting submitted an appeal to the councillor led decision which is being heard by the Planning Inspectorate by written representation. The deadline for objections is the 3rd May.
Your Labour councillors are objecting to the argument made by the WOFC to suggest that the councillor decision was wrong. You can read their objection below.
If you wish to also raise objection you should email East2@planninginspectorate.
