Killian Garvey, instructed by Cherwell District Council, has successfully resisted an appeal by Gladman Developments Limited for a 75 dwelling scheme at Kirtlington, Oxfordshire.
The Inspector said in his decision letter that the Council were able to demonstrate a five-year supply of deliverable housing sites. Moreover, the Inspector found that the proposal would cause real harm to the local landscape, which was clearly valued by local people, and the rural setting of the village. Accordingly, he ultimately determined that the proposal was at odds with the development plan and that planning permission should, therefore, be refused.
