Decision: The appeal succeeds. The enforcement notice is quashed and planning permission is granted in the terms set out in the Formal Decision.

Summary:  The Inspector considered there was an essential need for an agricultural worker to live on site for a limited period and granted temporary permission for three years subject to conditions limiting occupation to a person solely or mainly working, or last working, in the locality in agriculture or forestry or a widow or widower of such a person and to any resident dependents and a scheme for restoration of the site once the mobile is removed.

Decision: Appeal Dismissed.

Summary:  The Inspector considered that the extension, as a result of its bulk and design would detract from the character and appearance of No. 7 and would unbalance the appearance of the pair, to the detriment of the street scene.

 

APP/F2605/H/13/2194623: HOCKERING: Country Fresh Produce Ltd, Hill House: Appeal against the refusal to grant express consent for a non-illuminated sign by Rembrandt Restaurant Ltd: Reference: 3PL/2012/1167/A

Decision: Appeal Dismissed.

Summary:  The Inspector considered that the sub division would adversely affect the living conditions of both future occupants of the new units and the occupants of No. 21 by virtue of movement and noise of cars close to ground floor habitable rooms

 

APP/F2605/A/13/2199105: BRADENHAM: Land opposite Westbrooke Barns, West End: Appeal against the refusal to grant outline planning permission for a two-storey dwelling (self build) by Mr S Hindrey and Miss L Raven: Reference: 3PL/2012/1309/O

Decision: Appeal Dismissed.

Summary:  the Inspector considered the dwelling would be in an isolated location, remote from services.  Its scale and elevated site would result in a prominent building that would detract from the rural character of the area.  Visibility at the access would be unacceptably poor. 

 

APP/F2605/A/13/2196149: ROCKLANDS: Holly Cottage, Chapel Street, Rockland St Peter: Appeal against the refusal to grant planning permission for a single detached dwelling and garage by Mr David Batch: Reference: 3PL/2012/1057/F

Summary:  The Inspector did not consider the proposal likely to adversely harm the amenities of nearby or future residents or the character or appearance of the area.

 

APP/F2605/A/13/2196940: EAST TUDDENHAM: Magpie Yard, Traps Lane: Appeal against the refusal to grant planning permission for the conversion of an existing structure to workshop connected with use of the site as a place for the storage of vehicles (retrospective) without complying with a condition attached to the original planning permission by Mr Bob Taylor: Reference: 3PL/2013/0154/F

Decision: Appeal Dismissed.

Summary:  The Inspector considered that in the absence of a condition linking the use of the building to the use of the yard it could be used as a general workshop.  This would be likely to result in additional vehicle movements on local highways that would compromise the safety and convenience of highway users.

 

APP/F2605/A/13/2194766: GARVESTON: Site Frontage, Rose Farm, The Street, Reymerston: Appeal against the refusal to grant planning permission for the erection of a detached 3/4 bedroom dwelling and single garage with store by A N and L W Palmer-Wright: Reference: 3PL/2012/0837/F

Decision: Appeal Dismissed.

Summary:  The Inspector considered the proposal would be isolated and not a form of sustainable development and would unacceptably harm the character and appearance of the locality.  The proposal would fail to preserve the character and appearance of the Conservation Area.

 

APP/F2605/A/13/2197373: YAXHAM: Land off Station Road: Appeal against the refusal to grant outline planning permission for residential development (four plots) by Mr and Mrs R Thomas: Reference: 3PL/2012/0814/O

Decision: Appeal Dismissed.

Summary:  The Inspector considered that, whilst the proposal would be consistent with the objectives of the Framework, the absence of affordable housing and the substandard visibility at the site entrance would have an adverse impact which would outweigh the benefits of developing the four houses.
