Our client wanted to lay down a new track and improved access to her development, which was for the conversion of outbuildings into 4 holiday dwellings. The Local Planning Authority supported the application saying it was akin to any other agricultural track in the area. However the Planning Committee saw fit to refuse permission.

In the ensuing appeal the Planning Inspector had no problem in allowing this track, which in his view had substantial benefits in terms of an improved access onto the adjoining highway. He took full account of the neighbour’s objections and dismissed them as having any planning substance. He allowed the appeal with conditions and a very pleased client was delighted at the outcome.
