Planning permission for new homes granted at appeal

June 2012

planning & construction news

Planning permission has been granted at appeal for the development of 3 residential dwellings in Borrowash, Derbyshire. It follows initial concerns from The Local Authority about road safety, an unsustainable location and living conditions (noise and disturbance).

Planning for the development was originally refused in October 2011, however persistence from planners at Fisher German allowed a successful appeal. In addition to this, they were also granted a further application for costs incurred.  
 
Fisher German satisfied The Planning Inspectorate that the dwellings would not suffer from the objections raised by The Local Authority; who were concerned about the site’s close proximity to the town centre, a local cafe, shopping centre and services. The planners demonstrated that a car free development was acceptable and that the site is a sustainable location by virtue of its location close to the town centre, as well as being situated on a well connected bus route.
 
It was identified that there was a high demand for this type of dwelling in the town and that the development would help meet the five year supply of housing for the area. Suitable off-street parking within the vicinity was also recognised by the Inspector. The proposal complied with National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) by being in a car free development, in a sustainable location with good access to shops, services and employment. The Planning Inspectorate allowed the appeal on this basis. 
 
Alan Hardwick of Fisher German’s planning and construction team has been working on this application for over a year and is delighted with the outcome. Mr Hardwick comments “This is Fisher German’s first successful appeal following the NPPF changes and it shows that if decisions are challenged by providing sound reasons that counter objections, persistency does pay off. 
 
“We respect the views of all Local and Highways Authorities but if we didn’t challenge them, we wouldn’t be working in the best interest of our clients and our job is to deliver an excellent service to them.”
