Car parking and garden land maintains status quo

An inspector decided that retaining three car parking spaces in Bath would not have an unacceptable impact on the city's conservation area nor undermine the need to promote sustainable forms of travel.

The land had been physically divided from the rear of two dwellings at some point in the past. While the separation of the land from the two dwellings had had a negative impact on the conservation area, the harm had already occurred and the council had in fact granted permission for three spaces. Adding a further three spaces would make little difference, he determined. Nor was there any significant evidence to indicate that it would lead to increased car dependency.
