DC Casebook: Waste Management - Topsoil recycling agreed in national park

A resource recycling, recovery and transfer facility connected with a landscape gardening business in the New Forest has won support from an inspector who also decided that the appellants should be awarded costs.

The inspector was satisfied that the appellants' landscape and noise impact assessments showed that the scheme would not undermine the area's character or threaten local residents' amenity. It would also meet a need for topsoil and the national park authority had identified no alternative sites for the facility, he found. The authority had acted unreasonably in failing to produce substantial evidence to support its refusal of permission against officers' advice, he concluded.
