Casework Tracker

Casework Tracker is a email service that delivers the most significant appeals each week across all areas of development (from satellite dishes to new settlements and from retail to renewable energy). The appeals are selected and abstracted by experienced planning professionals, based on their legal interest or where inspectors have arrived at interesting interpretations.

  • Comprehensive

  • Full appeal downloads included in the subscription at your selected level

  • Key issues highlighted - all decisions include a full abstract

Latest Appeal Summaries

Custom build scheme fails a second time on semi-rural site

An outline scheme for five custom build plots and access on the site of a stable block, hard standing and open grassland outside a linear village in Berkshire failed despite an inspector finding a modest but beneficial contribution to housing mix and choice and the local economy.

Housing dismissed as unwelcome precedent

An inspector agreed with a Nottinghamshire council that an outline scheme for 35 houses in the open countryside outside of a defined settlement would set a precedent for further development in the area and undermine development plan strategy.

Flats judged unacceptably small

Plans for alterations and extensions to provide a second floor and create twelve small flats in a property used as a shop and three flats in a local centre within a Cambridgeshire city conservation area failed when an inspector found the proposed living accommodation inadequate.

Positive deception claim denied

The retention of an Islamic place of worship and religious community centre from the unauthorised change of use of a large family house in a London borough was allowed by an inspector after he found the council had not been deliberately misled.
