Campaigners against the Quadrant development will be ‘watching with interest’ following the announcement of the delay to the application.
Sue Bell, one of the key figures of the opposition, said they could not react to the decision without knowing the key reason for why the department needed more time.
However, she said: “All I can say is we’re going to watch with interest to see how it progresses.”
She said the campaigners had not disbanded in any way, and were very much still in contact with each other.
During the application process they argued that the development was in the wrong location and would have a negative impact on the people of Wyberton and the surrounding area.
