appeal allowed – Beeston

Elsewhere we report on the excellent result achieved at Northampton Gateway. On a slightly smaller scale, yet taking a similar amount of time, three and a half years, we have helped secure consent for three dwellings, replacing one. The site is at the end of a shared private driveway extending from Bridle Road in Beeston. Bridle Road is narrow, as is the shared private driveway, speeds are low, but visibility is still substandard at only 13m. Nevertheless, the specific local conditions mean that the extra houses would not, in our opinion, lead to unacceptable road safety impacts. Broxtowe Borough Council disagreed and refused the application. The Inspector agreed and allowed the appeal. We congratulate Taylor Built Homes on their patience and for having the guts to submit their beliefs to the ultimate test.
