Appeals round-up: Glasgow student accommodation rejected because of insufficient amenity space; 325 Wigan homes do not threaten employment land supply

A round-up of appeal decisions: 2 April-8 April, 2016

Glasgow student accommodation rejected because of insufficient amenity space

Curlew Capital has been refused permission for a 262-bed student accommodation development after an inspector agreed with Glasgow City Council’s assessment that the replacement of a permitted gymnasium with two commercial units rendered the scheme unsuitable in relation to policy on student accommodation.

325 Wigan homes do not threaten employment land supply

St Modwen Properties has been granted permission for 325 family homes and the demolition of existing buildings at the Wigan Enterprise Park, after an inspector ruled that the low quality of the employment land greatly reduced the extent to which its loss should weigh against the proposal.

The Planner

Bangor campsite would harm landscape character

Permission has been refused for four tipis and eight tent pitches plus the conversion of existing buildings into associated facilities and storage in Bangor, Wales, after an inspector ruled that the scheme did not include adequate screening to mitigate its impact on the landscape.

HMO to student accommodation change of use will not compromise housing supply

Hertford College has been granted permission for the change of use of a large house of multiple occupancy (HMO) to student accommodation after an inspector ruled that the proposal would not have negative implications for the housing stock within the city of Oxford or the living conditions of nearby residents.

Housing policies’ non-compliance with NPPF sees 300 homes approved for Kent

Cooper Estates has been given permission to develop 300 homes and 2.6 hectares of public open space in Edenbridge, Kent, after an inspector ruled that the inconsistency of Sevenoaks District Council’s Core Strategy (CS) with the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) meant that the scheme could not be refused because of concerns over density.

The Planner

24 live/work units would not be inappropriate for green belt

Country Barns and Homes has been granted outline planning permission for 24 dwellings and 24 associated commercial units in Marlston cum Lache, Chester, after an inspector ruled that the development would not harm the green belt.

The Planner

321 homes approved for Ledbury

Gladman Developments has been granted permission to develop 321 residential dwellings in Ledbury, Herefordshire, after an inspector determined that the scheme would not harm the Ledbury Conservation Area or the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
