New Applications

Use the links below (arranged in application number order within week) to see the details on new applications that Watchdog thinks might be of interest to readers.

In addition to these, we have noticed that the first of the series of listed building applications by Network Rail in preparation for electrification are being lodged.  Although many of the applications for the electrification of the GWR will be outside the area normally covered by Watchdog, we know that a number of our readers are very interested in the plans submitted by Network Rail.  We have therefore created an additional page specifically for Network Rail's electrification applications so that they are all in one place and easy to find.

 

Click on the Application link to read the entry on the planning file.  This link also allows the on-line comment facility to be used, if wished.

Entries will be removed from this page when it is no longer possible to comment on them.
