The Leasows Chipping Campden- Update

Planning – Planning Permission Granted on appeal

Update

Outline planning permission secured on appeal by BPA for 30 houses on the edge of the idyllic Cotswolds town of Chipping Campden in the heart of the Cotswolds AONB.

With regard to impact on the AONB, the Inspector concluded that the proposal did not constitute ‘major development’ for the purposes of the Framework and that whilst there would be significant and localised change resulting in some harm to the overall character and appearance of the countryside, the proposals would conserve the natural beauty of the AONB.

In considering the benefits of the scheme, the Inspector noted that notwithstanding the Council’s ability to demonstrate a 5-year supply of housing land, against the background of a need to significantly boost the supply of housing the provision of 30 further dwellings carried significant weight.  In addition, in the context of a cumulative shortfall in the supply of affordable housing in the District, he also attached considerable weight to the affordable housing to be delivered through the scheme.  Further weight was given to the environmental benefits of the scheme, in improving accessibility along public rights of way and in providing a stronger and more appropriate boundary between the town and the open countryside beyond.

The appeal for 30 houses was thus allowed, subject to a condition requiring the detailed site layout to broadly comply with that submitted with the outline application.
