To appeal or not to appeal!

Although the owner of Ruperra Castle had declared his intention of appealing against the decision of Caerphilly Councillors' Planning Committee to reject his housing application , he has not yet officially applied. Councillor Phil Bevan, the chairman of Ruperra Conservation Trust, has written to the Planning Inspectorate asking to be informed when the appeal is documented so that the Trust's wish to object at the inquiry can be taken into account in good time.

The Trust with the help of a panel of experts is meanwhile working on a future plan for the castle and is studying structural reports on the condition of the castle itself.

People are asking whether they shall take down the placards that they have displayed in their gardnes and windows. The answer is, please keep them there for a while until it is clear what is happening.
