A round-up of planning appeals: 11 June-17 June, 2022

Mitigation measures would reduce homes’ impact on Solent

A development of six homes has been allowed in Cowes on the Isle of Wight after an inspector ruled that the mitigation measures agreed with the appellant would help to preserve the Solent special protection area (SPA), an area designated to protect rare birds.

The Planner

Design of modernist home not strong enough to justify policy conflict

A low-energy dwelling near Harrogate has been dismissed after an inspector concluded that the home would not constitute a ‘truly outstanding’ design, and so its conflict with policies designed to limit isolated homes in rural areas was not justified.

The Planner

Unauthorised alterations at historic Hackney beer hall must be removed

An inspector has upheld an enforcement action at The Joiner on Worship beer hall in London, after deciding that changes made to the grade II listed building harmed the significance and integrity of the Italianate-design warehouse.

The Planner

Listed pub may still be viable and cannot become a home, inspector rules

An inspector has dismissed a change of use from pub to dwelling at the Red Lion Inn, in Great Bricett, Suffolk, saying the business was still viable.

The Planner

Inspector sides with appellant on housing land supply dispute

Outline planning permission for up to 100 homes has been granted for a site in Yatton, Somerset, after an inspector concluded that the proposal would help to address a shortfall in the area’s housing land supply.

The Planner

Contribution to housing supply outweighs landscape harms

Outline planning permission for up to 170 homes has been granted near Sileby, Leicestershire, following an inspector’s determination that the development’s contribution to the area’s housing land shortfall outweighed any harmful impacts of the scheme.

The Planner

Short-term permission for hydrocarbon mineral exploration would limit harms

Housing minister Stuart Andrew has granted permission for hydrocarbon mineral exploration for a period of three years in Dunsfold, Surrey. Andrew accepted an inspector’s conclusion that the short-term nature of the proposal would mitigate both harm to the landscape and the impact on residents and businesses.
