A round-up of appeal decisions: 7 May-13 May, 2016

Newmarket development would not harm the horse-racing industry

Permission has been granted for a racehorse training establishment and the erection of up to 63 dwellings at Meddler Stud in the village of Kentford, Newmarket, after an inspector decided that the development of land formerly in use as a stud farm would not harm the horse-racing industry (HRI).

The Planner

The Planner

Wakeboarding facilities would not generate harmful noise

Lakeside Lodge Golf Centre has won an appeal against Huntingdonshire District Council to install a wakeboarding cable and erect changing rooms at its site in Hemingford Grey, Cambridgeshire, after an inspector ruled that the council could not adequately demonstrate that the scheme would be unacceptably noisy for a nearby dwelling.

The Planner

119 homes in Shrivenham seen as ‘necessary growth’

Gladman Developments has received permission to develop 119 homes in Shrivenham, Oxfordshire, after an inspector decided that the extent to which the development would extend the existing settlement would be in keeping with government aims to boost the supply of housing.

The Planner

Biomass boiler would not be ‘unneighbourly’

Retrospective planning permission has been granted for a biomass boiler, flue and associated housing in Eastbourne, East Sussex, after an inspector disagreed that the development would be incongruous in the area.
