TODAY (28th Feb) the decision was announced by the Planning Inspectorate. The following is taken from the report...


To summarise, I have concluded that the proposal would harm the setting of nearby listed buildings, and that this harm would not be outweighed by the identified public benefits of the scheme. As such the proposal would conflict with the Framework and the District Plan policies HA1 and HA7.

For the reasons given above, and having regard to all other matters raised, I conclude that the appeal should be dismissed. More »
