Parker Planning Services are pleased to have turned around a previous case of refusal into a secure planning permission grant for 7 single storey dwellings and garages with associated off-road parking and an attenuation pond/wildlife area in Rocklands All Saints.
The site was previously refused on the basis that the proposed dwellings would be remote from a wide range of local services and facilities. Therefore, in the absence of convenient and safe walking and cycling routes or bus services to larger settlements, future occupants would be largely dependent on transport by car for access to work, education and leisure. It was also suggested that the two of the seven dwellings would result in intrusion into the open countryside, therefore the development would cause significant harm to the character and appearance which is rural, flat and tranquil in nature.
Despite this, we emphasised an overwhelming argument in favour of the development, highlighting numerous factors which suggested that approval should be in fact be granted for this site. This carefully considered some of the following;
Commercial, Residential, Tourism and Leisure
Agricultural and Rural, Residential
