Suburban feel to appeal site secures permission on green field

Planning permission was granted for the erection of 46 dwellings on the edge of a Hampshire town an Inspector giving weight to the site's context which had a suburban feel.

The immediate area contained a mix of uses including houses and included low level uses such as a cemetery and open space. Its character was influenced by a housing development which was underway nearby, the Inspector decided, and more development was planned. Due to the limited size of the site and suburban character of the locality it would not materially detract from the character of the wider landscape. It occupied a sustainable location and while it would breach the settlement boundary this was insufficient reason to refuse permission.
