Appeal win   
22 April 2015 | Posted by Andy Thompson
Acting for North Norfolk District Council, Beacon have successfully defended a decision to refuse planning permission for a replacement dwelling in the countryside.
The site for the new dwelling, to replace a bungalow, barns and a polytunnel, is within an AONB and a conservation area.

The Inspector agreed that as the replacement dwelling was located over 75m away from the existing dwelling it would have 'a materially greater impact on the appearance of the surrounding countryside, and in light of the above, would be harmful to it'.

Although he accepted the harm to the conservation area was 'less than substantial' it neither preserved or enhanced the character and appearance of the conservation area and compounded the adverse impact on the AONB.

This latest appeal success ensures Beacon's success rate remains at around twice the national average.
