A round-up of planning appeals: 13 April-19 April, 2019

Portable golf shelter is a building, rules inspector

A 10-metre wide and four-metre tall ‘portable golf shelter’ designed to allow play to continue in bad weather has not harmed the openness of Leeds’ green belt, an inspector has found.

72 per cent size increase ‘not disproportionate’ in green belt

Plans for further extensions to a home in the Surrey Hills AONB that would result in a 72 per cent increase over its original size would not be ‘disproportionate’, ruled an inspector.

Cafe's pavement extension adds ‘vibrancy’ to shopping terrace

An inspector has quashed enforcement action against a glazed forecourt cover structure added to one unit of an otherwise uniform row of shops in Manchester, ruling that it added ‘vibrancy’ to the street.

The Planner

New home would be too close to youth park

Plans to build a new home in the village of Cubert, Cornwall, could prevent the future installation of more facilities at a nearby youth park, an inspector has ruled.

The Planner

Catford tower allowed contrary to masterplan

An inspector has approved plans for an eight-storey tower in Catford comprising 42 flats, despite acknowledging that it could ‘constrain’ future plans to regenerate the Plassy Island area.

The Planner

Extension is not permitted development due to 10cm gap

Plans for a rear extension were not covered by permitted development rights, an inspector has ruled, because a part of the original home’s rear elevation was set back by just 10 centimetres.

The Planner

Progressive illness justifies self-build home

An inspector has approved a disabled man’s plans to build a single-storey home in his rear garden contrary to the council’s spatial plan, ruling that to refuse permission would seriously compromise the appellant’s human rights.

The Planner

Housing scheme would harm ‘irreplaceable’ listed farmstead

Plans for 150 homes near the Meon Valley in Hampshire would harm the setting of two grade II* listed buildings, an inspector has ruled, refusing permission despite the council’s housing supply shortfall.
