Update from the Development Manager

 

Minutes:

Members noted the planning appeal statistics report that set out five appeal decision notices, of which three had been dismissed and two allowed. 

 

The Development Manager drew Members’ attention to the two appeal decisions allowed.  The first one related to Green Acres which had previously been reported to Members at the last meeting and the second related to application 20/2461/FUL – The Dairy Barn. Combehayes Farm, Honiton.  The Inspector disagreed with officers concerns about the lack of justification for the building and also determined the proposed building would not have any significant effect on the landscape and scenic beauty of the AONB and therefore allowed the appeal.
