Barn refused due to impact on neighbours

A proposal to erect a livestock barn at a farm in South Yorkshire has been denied permission after an inspector concluded that it would adversely affect residents' amenity in a nearby house.

The inspector referred to class A.1(h), part 6, schedule 2 of the General Permitted Development Order 1995, which states that siting livestock buildings within 400m of homes may give rise to nuisance from odours, noise and disturbance. In his opinion, these potential effects would be exacerbated by vehicles manoeuvring and the barn's size and height, which would result in significant visual intrusion.
