'Orangery' extension would harm 14th-century cottage

Javid approves more wind turbines on Isle of Sheppey

Sajid Javid has granted permission for four further wind turbines on the Isle of Sheppey, northern Kent, ruling that their harm to the landscape would be considerably reduced by grouping them next to an existing wind farm.

The Planner

Suspended glass extension allowed for ‘striking’ Wakefield water tower

Plans to convert a 'striking' concrete water tower in the Wakefield green belt area into a home have been approved, after an inspector ruled that the proposed glazed extension would be 'lightweight' and sensitive to the original building.

The Planner
