First Post NPPF Recovered Appeal

Still looking through an interesting appeal out today the former RAF Upwood in Huntingdonshire, subject to a successful JR on a previous refusal.

Still looking through the decision but this stuck out

The Secretary of State has had regard to the Draft National Planning Policy Framework document, issued for consultation on 25 July, but as this document is
still in draft form and subject to change, he has accorded its policies little weight

My emphasis.

As Huntingdonshire has a recently adopted core strategy is unsurprising the appeal was dismissed. The developer paid too much for the land and the SoS agreed, for a scheme that was greatly in excess of development plan requirements.
