Beacon Planning provide expert advice at appeal hearing   
28 September 2015 | Posted by Joanna Burton
Senior Consultant Joanna Burton has recently provided expert heritage advice to the Planning Inspectorate at an appeal hearing on behalf of a major care home provider.

The application for a first class care home with specialist facilities for those suffering from dementia was supported by planning officers, including the conservation officer, however the recommendation for approval was overturned by members at Planning Committee. Located within a conservation area, the reason for refusal raised concern about the potential impact on the historic environment. Beacon Planning has appraised the contribution of the site to the conservation area along with the potential impacts of the proposed scheme and consider that it will create opportunities for enhancement.

The Inspector's decision is due in the forthcoming weeks.
