Planning Casebook Appeal Summaries

Positive neighbourhood plan prevents housing in shortfall area

A proposal for up to 81 dwellings and associated infrastructure has been refused in open countryside in Wiltshire for overall conflict with the locational development plan policies and a made neighbourhood plan for the area, despite the inspector finding the local plan out of date.

Bedfordshire housing site refused again in redetermination

In a redetermined appeal for a site for 135 dwellings on arable land in open countryside in Bedfordshire, the inspector refused the scheme once again based on finding significant harm to local character and distinctiveness, adverse visual impact and a small loss of high-quality agricultural land set alongside a positive housing land supply situation.

Fallback no excuse for greater harms to ancient woodland

A block of 21 flats at a hotel in a village in East Sussex was refused for being in an unsuitable location in terms of car dependence, for harm to nearby ancient woodland, the appearance and character of the area and the living conditions of future occupiers.
