Planning permission obtained on appeal for two dwellings in North Cheshire Green Belt

An appeal was allowed on 18 December 2019 for the construction of two dwellings on land off Park Lane, Pickmere in Cheshire East.

Planning permission was refused by Cheshire East Council on the grounds that the proposed houses would comprise inappropriate development in the Green Belt. In granting outline planning permission, the Inspector agreed with the assessment by Emery Planning that the proposal would constitute a relatively small gap between existing buildings. He accepted that the carriageway of the road would maintain a permanent gap between the two existing properties but the effect of the proposal at the street level would be an infill of the continuous form of linear development that carries on from Park Lane across the junction up Frog Lane.
