The site contained a single garage and lay between commercial uses on a busy road. An elevated section of the nearby M5 generated significant noise, the inspector noted. The appeal scheme would result in a dwelling with a very small garden and a restricted outlook, he concluded. He considered that occupiers would be compromised in their ability to use the amenity space because of the high noise levels and unattractive outlook.
