Dobcross New Road, Dobcross, Saddleworth – Oldham Council

Emery Planning was appointed to provide planning advice in relation to a site in Saddleworth and worked closely with HNA Architects in securing planning permission for the erection of a dwelling house. The site is within the designated Green Belt and an appeal had been dismissed by the Planning Inspectorate in 2015 for the erection of a dwelling. We were able to emphasise more recent case law in support of our position that the scheme was now compliant with Green Belt planning policy in terms of infill development within villages and paragraph 145(e) of the Framework. Oldham Council agreed that the new dwelling would be compliant with the development plan and national planning policy guidance.
