Latest Appeal Summaries

Varied density allows transition from village to countryside

The ability to provide a varied housing density on almost six hectares of land on the edge of a Lincolnshire village won support from an inspector who decided that in combination with planned open space, it would enable an improved transition between the rest of the site and surrounding agricultural land.

Enforcement notice judged to be null and void leading to inquiry abandonment and costs

An enforcement notice issued by a local authority in Gloucestershire which alleged that concrete pads had been constructed and roadways built ready for the siting of mobile homes was held to be a nullity, with a full award of costs being made in favour of the appellant. This led the inspector to abandon the inquiry on the opening morning after hearing legal arguments for both parties.

Despite a local planning authority in Somerset confirming that a site had an extant permission for 72 dwellings, an alternative scheme for 70 dwellings was rejected because of its adverse impact on the landscape.

A low energy dwelling in Derbyshire was judged by an inspector to meet the requirements of paragraph 55 of the NPPF in delivering the highest standard of design and enhancing the surrounding area.
