The scheme comprised glasshouses, polytunnels, an office, a staff block and a general storage building. The appellant also proposed to create a recreational fishing lake and a car park for 22 vehicles. The inspector noted that the proposed office and staff block resembled a bungalow.
He considered that the buildings, which would be erected in an open and undeveloped field, would not form a coherent group. Their size, design and siting and the creation of hard surfaced areas would compromise the area's openness, he decided. He judged that no very special circumstances had been put forward to justify the scheme.
