A Letter from the Assembly but still No Decision

In response to an enquiry from Ruperra Castle Preservation Trust, a letter was received, dated November 4th 2009, from Mr John Eliot of the Decisions Branch of the Welsh Assembly Planning Division.It says:
"The appeal is currently receiving urgent consideration but has taken longer to deal with than anticipated. However I can assure you that the decision will be issued as soon as possible and that your representations will be considered in reaching that decision."

Let's hope we can announce the result, whatever it may be, at our annual dinner on November 20th at 7 pm at the Hollybush Inn in Draethen. There are still some places avaiable for this event.
