Casebook: Appeal cases - Agricultural development - Fishing hut and sheds held to harm landscape

Two enforcement appeals to retain a fishing hut and a group of timber buildings in a Wiltshire special landscape area have been dismissed after an inspector concluded that the landscape could not readily assimilate them.

The appellant, who owned a stretch of riverbank, asserted that the sheds were used to store agricultural machinery associated with the holding as well housing livestock during the winter. The inspector saw little evidence to support these claims, finding that the range of buildings was excessively large for the size of holding. The buildings were not innocuous and their impact on a sensitive riverside location was unacceptable, he ruled.
