Comiston Farmhouse... Securing the Future

Planning Application Withdrawn... but will be re-submitted

News as at 4 February 2020

Buckley Building Ltd has withdrawn the planning application...
... but will submit a revised proposal. 

Apparently the sale contract is still valid, but with some changes required to the planning application the developer considered it wise to withdraw the current scheme. The revised application should be submitted in March and should address the planning officers' concerns.
