DC Casebook: Next week

Waste site held intrusive in airport views

The continued processing of construction waste near Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 has been blocked on visual amenity grounds, an inspector noting that stockpiles could be seen from the departure lounge, car park and link road. DCS Number 100-050-530

Emergency hours covered by condition

An inspector has allowed the retention of a dental surgery extension in a residential area in Warwickshire after deciding that conditions could control the arrival of patients for emergency treatment at unsocial hours. DCS Number 100-050-518

Conversion held no threat to employment

The secretary of state has allowed the conversion of two empty office blocks in Southend-on-Sea to 280 flats with ground-floor commercial uses because it would not harm the supply of employment floor space. DCS Number 100-050-607

Food store blocked on design grounds

An Aldi food store in the suburbs of a Gloucestershire market town has been rejected following a ruling that it would stand out as a bulky, monolithic and incongruous intrusion. DCS Number 100-050-430.
