Appeal in Hinkly and Bosworth – Protecting Countryside for its Own Sake Contrary to #NPPF

HBF weekly news, if anyone has this appeal or Chester Nirsery St Labans appeals please send me.

After considering previous planning appeal decisions in the district where inspectors had applied both the Liverpool and Sedgefield methodology when calculating the five year housing land supply, he concluded that national policy in the NPPF and NPPG now advised that undersupply should be made good in the first five years where there was evidence of under-delivery. This was not intended as a ‘punishment’ for councils, merely to improve the conditions for delivery.

The inspector also considered that the council’s policy of protecting the countryside for its own sake did not directly accord with the NPPF and a blanket restriction on development in the countryside was inconsistent with the presumption in favour of sustainable development. Appellant: David Wilson Homes and Andrew Grainger and Company
