Update from the Development Manager

Minutes:

The Committee noted the Development Manager’s report setting out 7 appeal decisions notified and was pleased to note that 6 had been dismissed with only 1 allowed. 

 

The Development Manager advised Members the appeal allowed for application 19/067LBC - Mead, Fortescue Road, Sidmouth Consent was a listed building application which related to a dismissed planning application appeal.  Members noted the Inspector had dismissed the planning application for the construction of a new dwelling in the garden but allowed the associated listed building application as it only related to the extension to the stone boundary wall.

 

The Development Manager drew attention to an appeal for planning application 19/1351/FUL – Land at Liverton Business Park that Members had previously considered.  Members were advised the Inspectorate were in the process of determining whether the appeal should be dealt with by way of written representations or a public inquiry.

 

Finally the Development Manager updated Members on an appeal allowed for planning application 18/2339/MOUT - Hillpond Caravan Park, Clyst St Mary that the council had challenged in the High Court.  The Development Manager advised Members the Inspectorate had conceded the position and had agreed for the High Court to quash their original decision and allow the Planning Inspectorate to consider the appeal again.
