Casebook: Leisure and Entertainment - Car park lighting held to spoil local amenity

The retention of three lighting columns at a hotel in a Hampshire conservation area has been rejected after an inspector held that they undermined its character.

The inspector found that the 4m columns had a modern industrial appearance that was alien to the conservation area. Light spillage during autumn and winter months was also likely to adversely affect local residents' amenity, he determined. However, he decided that two retractable awnings over decked sitting-out areas were acceptable and allowed this aspect of the appeal.

DCS No: 100039311; Inspector: Chris Gossop; Hearing.
