Planning House are delighted to have secured planning permission for a clients brick building which was erected without planning permission. An enforcement notice was issued requiring its removal which is now quashed as part of the appeal process.
The building lies outside of the settlement boundary of Station Town, whilst the Council contended that this was an encroachment into the countryside the Planning Inspector disagreed and allowed the retention of the building.
