Development Control Casebook: Householder Development - Classic car storage stopped in green belt

A Derbyshire householder's plans to replace a small wooden shed with a garage 25m long, 7m wide and 8m high to store classic cars has been judged harmful to the openness of the green belt.

The inspector felt that the garage's size and siting would urbanise the green belt and, to a lesser extent, undermine the area's character and appearance. The appellant's claim that a building could be erected under permitted development rights carried little weight because these had been removed when the dwelling was remodelled some years ago. In any event, these would not have allowed the size of building proposed.
