The pool was located in a separate building at the rear of the premises.
The appellant intended to use it to teach groups of four or five children or provide individual lessons for no more than four hours a day, up to three days a week. Given the location and proposed level of use, she maintained that neighbours would not suffer any significant noise or disturbance.
The inspector noted that lessons would be held at the peak period when people would be returning home from work and nearby commercial premises would still be operating. He acknowledged that this raised concerns about parking and the free flow of traffic on a busy principal road. He decided that a trial run would give the council an opportunity to fully assess the impact of the use.
