Dear Mr Flinton and Cllr Weighell
Why did NYCC allow the initial planing application for the Park and Ride to expire?
This has cost the tax payer £25,000 to re-submit the application!
When it should only have cost another £575.
In £2007 the application cost £1350 and planning was refused.
In £2008 there was a resubmission free of charge following alterations which I believe were passed
NYCC then allowed the planning permission to lapse.
However to extend the application it would have only cost £575.
From what I understand, had NYCC had begun constructing the Park & Ride they would not have had to apply for a completely new planning application.
Only submit alterations as it was being constructed.
So, NYCC have had to resubmitted the latest application from scratch as permission granted had lapsed and due to a change in application fees there has been a considerable increase.
It has now cost another £5780 for a new application to the National Park Authority.
Excluding all additional consultancy fees in submitting the new application and alterations made.
NYCC do NOT have planning permission for the Park and Ride, despite compulsory purchasing the land where the Park and Ride will be located and allowing previous approval to lapse.
1) As a freedom of information request please may I have the total cost incurred by NYCC regards the Park & Ride, Whitby?
2) Please include all external consultancy fees and an approximate cost of NYCC officer time?
