Agricultural and Rural, Planning Appeals, Residential
Our client came to us after having their application refused early 2017 for their site in Newman’s Green, Suffolk.
After reviewing the reasons for refusal, we were confident we would be able to assist our client with an appeal.
The refusal notice referred to Policy CS11, and showed concerns relating to the sustainability of the development.
Our senior planner was able to show in his report that it did not matter whether or not the application was outside defined settlement boundary of Newman’s Green and Policy CS11 did not appear relevant as this just provides criteria for allowing development in Core and Hinterland Villages.
He was also able to show that the proposal would amount to a sustainable development in relative terms, i.e. the economic, social and environmental benefits to be accrued, that would fit in with the grain and pattern of the surrounding area, having regard to development plan and national policies.
We are thrilled we were able to gain planning permission for our client and look forward to seeing the outcome of this development.
