A PUBLIC inquiry into a refusal of planning permission and a planning enforcement notice served against homes at Grundy Fold Farm in Horwich has been postponed because of illness.

The virtual hearing had been set to open on October 6. A new date for the hearing has yet to be confirmed.

Announcing the original date for the hearing a Bolton Council spokesman said: “The inquiry follows an appeal by Elendra Raja against the refusal of planning application 05083/18 and the enforcement notice issued by Bolton Council’s planning department.

“The enforcement notice alleges that five dwellings and a garage building were built on the site without proper planning permission, along with alterations to land levels. The planning refusal was on Green Belt and landscape grounds.”

The inquiry was set to have been held by John Murray, a solicitor and inspector appointed by the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government.
