GREAT NEWS PLEASE SHARE
Dear friends of SAVE MARINA BAY
Whilst campaigning vigorously to prevent the over-development of Marina Bay we have also been making representations to the planning department. We believed that Ocean Village Investments Limited did not comply with the regulations as to notice periods which we felt was unfair and gave us less time to prepare our opposition to the proposed development than we were entitled to. Here is an extract from an email we have received this afternoon from the planning department:-
"The legal advice that we have received is that the application should not be entertained due to a failure to fully comply with section 19(4) of the Town Planning Act. Consequently we have advised the applicant that the current application must be withdrawn and that a new application should be submitted."
So we now have to await the resubmission. Any person wishing to make representations will need to do so during the appropriate public participation period for the new application when submitted. We do not know when that will be but rest assured that we will be ready and waiting for it when it arrives. The objections you have made will need to be resubmitted at the appropriate time so please save them. We will advise you when we need to take further action.
Your Team will work tirelessly in the background until we have a new date.
We thank you for all your efforts to date in opposing this proposed development.
the SAVE MARINA BAY team
