Head of Law Report - Planning Appeals (A.1536/AMC)


The Head of Planning explained that summaries of the cases decided had been forwarded to all Members.


Members noted concerns over the appeal allowed at The Lodge, Hollow Meadows. The Head of Planning indicated that he was inclined to write to the Planning Inspectorate to stress the need to apply greater weight in cases involving new development in the open countryside in order to uphold National Park purposes and protect the character of wilder landscapes.


Members endorsed the suggestion.




That the report be noted.
