The person at the top of the list to write to is Mrs Debbie Pickard.  Mrs Pickard is the Council Development Control/ Service Manager.  Apparently, Mrs Pickard will make a recommendation to the Planning Committee so we should target her.  The deadline for submitting objections has been extended to 20th May.
