Shropshire Council refused this application 19th May after originally validating it on 10th March. There reasons were stated as;
The proposed structure located forward of the principle elevation would interrupt the openness of the site resulting to a significant visual impact on the designed and approved landscape plan of the immediate surrounding environment. In addition, it is considered the scheme would have a negative impact by way of loss of natural skylight to the living room of the dwelling consequently, having an impact on future occupiers’ residential amenity. The erection of the garage would not respond appropriately to the locality and therefore contrary to Local Development Core Strategy Policy CS6, SAMDev Plan Policy MD2 as well as the overall aims and objectives of the National Planning Policy Framework in requiring sustainable development.
The Appeal Statement for this case that is shown in the video, was produced specifically to overcome the refusal reasons issued by Shropshire Council for this application. As with many of these types of refusals, the reasons are very subjective and as such require a comprehensive and robust detailed appeal statement. Never under-estimate the level of detail needed, covering policies both locally and nationally and where possible brining other approvals and appeals into the argument. We will explain in the video in more detail what and how to achieve this.
The Planning Inspectorate visited the site on 27th September and issued the decision on 14th October.
We are pleased to share that this appeal was successful as detailed in the Planning Inspectors report.
