So, perhaps not "essentially the same development" after all?

Aggregate Industries withdrew its applications for Straitgate and Blackhill on 1 March, after failing to check site access rights. But it's now 5 months since AI started to look into new access arrangements.

AI had said: "We anticipate the revised applications will be submitted towards the end of March 2016".

At the end of March, AI then said: "We plan to resubmit the proposal in April."

Well, it’s now May. No new applications have yet been delivered to DCC.

That’s quite a delay for what was supposed to be "essentially the same development"; quite a delay when AI’s planning permission for Blackhill on Woodbury Common expires at the end of this year.
