Casebook: Appeal cases - Housing: New Build - Cul-de-sac extension backed despite amenity fears

A proposal to build 96 houses in Surrey has been approved despite local planning authority concerns that it would erode the character and amenity of an existing housing estate.

The scheme involved extending a cul-de-sac to provide access to the site.

The inspector noted that one of the properties at the end of the road had a high level of amenity due to a lack of through traffic. From an examination of likely traffic flows and noise levels, she decided that the development would not give rise to an unacceptable degree of disturbance.

DCS No: 34700463; Inspector: Jane Stiles; Inquiry.
