Planning appeals

A round-up of planning appeals: 29 February-6 March, 2020

Successful relocation for popular village 'pizza garage'

A popular wood-fired pizza business that was refused permission at appeal in 2018 has won consent after moving into new premises 170m away, after an inspector deemed the new location more 'discreet'.

‘Vibrant' pink paint at odds with conservation area

An inspector has refused retrospective permission to paint a home in a Merseyside conservation area a ‘vibrant’ shade of pink, deeming the colour scheme ‘at odds with the palette’ of the area.

The Planner

No lifting of noise restrictions on pub's 'Aunt Sally' shy

A pub outbuilding intended for use as an 'Aunt Sally' shy cannot also be used as a music venue and must observe restrictions on its hours of use so as not to disturb neighbours.

The Planner

Simple majority does not prove local support for 325-home scheme

A developer has again failed to demonstrate community support for plans to treble the size of a Lincolnshire village that were rejected at appeal in 2018, despite an inspector commenting that it was 'hard to see what else it could have done'.

The Planner

700-home scheme allowed despite development plan conflict

An inspector has granted outline permission for a major housing scheme on the Isle of Sheppey, after finding no harm to an important local green gap and a listed farmhouse adjacent to the site.

The Planner

Financial contribution reduced for 250-bed student scheme

Plans for a nine-storey block of student accommodation in Bermondsey can go ahead with a reduced level of off-site affordable housing provision, after an inspector concluded that the appellant's offer was the 'maximum reasonable amount'.

The Planner

Derelict horticultural nursery deemed not PDL

An inspector has refused plans to build 61 homes on the site of a former horticultural nursery in Kent, rejecting the appellants' comparisons to a similar 2015 High Court case concerning the definition of previously developed land (PDL).
