DC Casebook: Next Week

- Surface mining rejected on visual harm

- Care home approved in residential area

The conversion of a house in Essex to a care home has been allowed after an inspector was unconvinced that it would undermine the area's residential character or harm amenity. DCS Number 100-065-587

- Snowdon views rule out wind project

A proposal for 13 wind turbines has been rejected at a site in north Wales after an inspector ruled that the scheme would harm an important view of Snowdon. DCS Number 100-065-581

- Boat mooring enforcement move upheld

An enforcement notice directed against the mooring of a boat in a Cornish boatyard has been upheld because repairs had become secondary to the provision of accommodation. DCS Number 100-065-561
