Planning & Development Associates (PDA) recently represented Horsham District Council in contesting an appeal against their refusal of planning permission for a residential development adjoining the settlement of Rudgwick.
The appeal was dismissed notwithstanding that the Council was unable to demonstrate a 5-year housing land supply.
Alan Gunne-Jones, who acted for the Council, commented:
"The decision is significant in that it confirms that the need for housing and a lack of a 5-year land supply should not necessarily override environmental considerations. Despite the clear benefits of additional housing, the Inspector concluded that this needed to be balanced against environmental impacts arising from the proposals.”
