We are really pleased with the decision taken by the local planning authority this week, to support plans for The Sill National Landscape Discovery Centre, with an overwhelming ten to one endorsement.
The planning committee's decision is an important milestone for the project's success.
Whilst this decision is a great step forward, the official decision regarding approval on the project is still to be determined.
We understand that there has been a third party request for the Secretary of State to determine this application and until the Department for Communities and Local Government have had an opportunity to consider the request we have to wait for a formal decision.
We expect to hear from the Planning Casework Unit in around three weeks and we will share an update on the decision with you following on from that.
