Planning Casebook Appeal Summaries

Astronomy telescopes scupper housing scheme

Uncontested expert evidence of the impact of electrical interference on the operation of a globally important research observatory led an inspector to reject a proposal for six houses outside a Cheshire village.

Phasing condition judged unnecessary

An inspector deleted a condition previously imposed on permission for a hybrid scheme of full details of 142 new flats after demolition of two blocks of flats and an outline second phase of 154 flats and 18 houses in a London borough.

Obligation fails to secure affordable housing

An outline scheme for redevelopment of two modern houses with a block of ten flats in a residential suburb in London was found in-keeping but rejected because it failed to make provision for affordable housing.

Legal Viewpoint

Legal Viewpoint: Rooftop notification error leads to quashing of consent

Planning applications for rooftop extensions are increasingly popular, especially in densely populated cities where not enough land is being brought forward for new housing. A planning application can be made by anyone, even someone without an interest in the land, and without first obtaining consent from the owner.
