To cut a long story short, my parents are looking for PP on amenity land - their own privately owned land within a town boundary. They want PP for one house for themselves - they already live in the town beside the site but the house is no longer suitable, better to re-build and sell the current house.
Anyway, their land was zoned amenity in the last plan as it once had trees on it (they're long gone now). At the time of the zoning they didn't make any representation to the Co. Co. The land also had previously been given PP for 5 houses but these had expired by the time of the re-zoning.
What options are available to get PP for one house on this site (it's about 6 acres). Can they challenge the zoning? Can a Co. Co zone private land as amenity when its not part of a larger development? Without explicitly informing the owners or are they supposed to respond as part of the general public consultation?
