DC Casebook: Appeal cases - Animal enclosure rejected in open field

An enclosure intended for keeping wild animals in an open field behind a cattery in south Wales has been refused permission on the grounds that it would be a discordant feature and out of character with the rural landscape.

The enclosure would be constructed of timber and wire mesh. The inspector agreed that it would be built to a high standard but considered that it would exhibit few rural characteristics. The appellant's commitment to the conservation of a rare and endangered species of leopard did not justify allowing inappropriate development in the countryside unrelated to agriculture, she decided.
