Replacement gates befitting of vineyard gateway

Wrought iron gates at a vineyard in west Sussex were judged to be more befitting of an entrance into the holding, an inspector noting that the business exported its wines across the world.

Currently the access was secured by a traditional farm gate and as planned the three-metre high gates would be supported by stone pillars. In the inspector’s opinion these were more in keeping with an entrance into the vineyard, a conclusion reinforced by other examples provided by the appellant. Moreover, recessed, and gated accesses were not uncommon in a rural setting.
