PBC are surprised and deeply disappointed that the Secretary of State has turned down our proposed development. We understand that the scheme faced much opposition, principally regarding the height of the tower, but felt that the evidence presented to the enquiry held in January more than justified the proposal. This is borne out by the Inspector's recommendation to approve the scheme.
We’ll now take time to consider where we go from here.
The church family is grateful to all who have assisted us up to this point, particularly our partners, Thornsett. We remain open to dialogue with any individuals or community groups who’d like to know more about our situation or have suggestions to make as to how we might proceed.
