Development on land North of Wanderdown road: application turned down!
What a great start to the new year!
The Government Inspector ruled last week to turn down the application to build 9 houses on the land North of Wanderdown road.
The proposed development would have some benefits. The proposal would make a contribution towards market housing and the affordable housing contributions weighs in favour of the appeal scheme. I have also found that the scheme would not cause harm to the setting of the Ovingdean Conservation Area, ecology and biodiversity or highway safety. However, these matters do not outweigh the harm to the landscape character and setting of the South Downs National Park and the negative visual impact.
