Consistent appeal decisions

Last August we were successful at appeal, making the case that planning applications should not be refused on the basis of 'any increase' in traffic (see Entran News Aug 19). This week we received planning permission from PINS for another site in the same Borough. We made an almost identical argument and received a consistent decision from the Inspector. In both cases the Inspector agreed with us that although the existing historic road layout did not conform to modern standards, the modest increase in traffic would not cause harm to highway safety [3254159]

Consistent appeal decisions

Successful appeal in Sidcup

The Planning Inspectorate allowed our appeal today and granted planning permission for a retail unit and residential accommodation in Sidcup. The planning application was refused by LB Bexley on grounds of insufficient parking and servicing, but the Inspector overturned both objections on the basis of our appeal statement. The Inspector concluded that it was not reasonable for LBB to insist on car parking above the London Plan maximum standards, and nor was it reasonable to object to the servicing arrangements given that the site is currently in retail use.
