DC Casebook: Appeal cases - Steel structure agreed in village setting

A steel grain store has been granted planning permission at a farm near a Suffolk village despite the local planning authority's objection to the visual impact of the scheme.

The farm occupied a hilltop location and comprised a close-knit mix of agricultural buildings constructed in various sizes and materials at different times. The grain store would be sited adjacent to the group. The inspector recognised that siting the store elsewhere on the 250ha holding would be intrusive in the local landscape and functionally inappropriate. He found that it would be screened to some extent in views from the village by existing buildings and would not adversely affect an adjacent conservation area's character.
