Appeals round-up: Clark turns down Chester homes because of flood risk; 222 homes refused because of harm to World Heritage Site

A round-up of appeal decisions: 30 April-6 May, 2016

Clark turns down Chester homes because of flood risk

Communities secretary Greg Clark has refused an application for 142 homes to be built on land partly comprising playing fields leased to the University of Chester. He determined that the proposal failed a sequential test in relation to flood risk.

222 homes refused because of harm to World Heritage Site

Linden Homes South West has been refused permission for the development of 222 homes, including 30 per cent affordable housing in Hayle, Cornwall, because of the scheme’s impact on the setting of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site.

The Planner

Retail to public house conversion unlikely to exacerbate local crime

Permission has been granted for the change of use of an existing curtains and carpets store to a public house in Matlock, Derbyshire, after an inspector concluded that the development would not undermine the safety, quality of life or community cohesion of the area.

The Planner

Skegness housing would not raise flood risk

Outline planning permission has been given for 97 homes in Burgh le Marsh, Skegness, despite concerns that the development would increase flooding in the area.

The Planner

Manchester flats would not harm conservation area

Britannia Homes has won permission to develop a mixed-use building with a ground-floor retail unit and 25 upper-level residential units in Withington, Manchester, despite Manchester City Council’s concerns about the impact of the development on parking in the area.

The Planner

Staffordshire homes would not disadvantage hospital parking

Permission has been granted for the development of 150 homes on land next to Queen’s Hospital in Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire, after an inspector decided that suitable alternative parking could be secured for the hospital.
