It was submitted to the Planning Inspectorate by Lugano Group just before the May 1 deadline. The company’s bid for up to 280 homes and other facilities on a site at Birney Hill in Ponteland was turned down by Northumberland County Council’s West Area Planning Committee in October.
The Ponteland Greenbelt Group has been campaigning against the plans and it has received big backing from the community as a total of 4,310 objections were submitted. There were also 487 letters supporting the scheme.
