Carter Jonas has lodged the appeal over the council’s decision to refuse the change for London-based Clear Channel’s site at Hill and Dale, Burnley Road, Luddenden Foot.

The council refused the application last July on the grounds it would be too intrusive and thus detrimental to residents in neighbouring homes.

The appeal will be determined by written representations and is proceeding under the “fast track” procedure, meaning there is no opportunity to submit comments but any representations made to the council have been forwarded to the Planning Inspectorate and the appellant, and will be considered by the Inspector when determining the appeal.
