Complainant Name:
Mr Stuart London

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Cambridge News

Mr Stuart London of Ickleton Riverside Barns complained that the articles had inaccurately claimed that he had not yet been granted a Certificate of Lawfulness to allow for the retail sale of garden accessories and other items at the site. In fact, the Certificate had been granted by the time the article was published. The complainant also contended that he had kept all traders informed of the situation regarding the application.

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a clarification making clear that the Certificate of Lawfulness for eight buildings had been granted on 15 November, and that a retrospective planning applications for other enterprises being carried out at the site was to be submitted within a month. The clarification also emphasised that there was currently nothing to prevent traders from carrying out their business at the site.

Report: 72
