Casebook: Appeal Cases - Leisure and entertainment - Dance club foiled by parking control problems

The retention of a dance and drama club in a late 19th century building in a Kent resort has been rejected after an inspector noted that the proposed car parking spaces lay outside the control of the appellant.

He accepted that the circuitous approach route was of an acceptable standard to serve the parking area but noted that this also lay outside the appeal site. This lack of control over parking arrangements could not be overcome by conditions, he decided. In the absence of convincing evidence that parking spaces and a turning area could be guaranteed, he judged the use of the building unsatisfactory.

DCS No: 32152353; Inspector: Dennis Howard; Hearing.
