In another twist to this extraordinary tale, West Sussex County Council have stated, 'The current operations on the site remain substantially a district matter and the breach of planning control is the responsibility of Chichester District Council.'
So, West Sussex County Council who dealt with the retrospective planning application now say that the enforcement should be sent back to Chichester District. On the 28th April, WSCC Planning Committee will consider a report concerning enforcement at Crouchland Farm and hopefully decide who should enforce.
Shocking to think what Crouchland Biogas must have cost the taxpayer to date. Further delays will follow before any enforcement can be decided.
At least Chichester will be familiar with Crouchland's other breaches of planning and won't need any introduction. Thankfully Chichester have already expressed their objections.
