The property was located on the wooded southern slopes of the gorge. The inspector noted that the area had an intimate and close-knit character where even small changes to external appearance would be noticeable. In his opinion, a dish 53cm wide and 39cm high would be a conspicuous and incongruous feature of the roofscape. The need for the dish to be mounted high on the chimney to obtain a clear signal was insufficient reason to grant permission, he ruled.
