appeal allowed – Banstead

A small but significant success for our client Charterpoint who have won their appeal (3271384) against Reigate & Banstead Borough Council. The site is a former commercial nursery and plant centre, that all agreed meant it is previously developed land. The Inspector decided that the proposed development of 10 dwellings would not be inappropriate development in the Green Belt, and allowed the appeal.

The application was supported by our Transport Statement. Through liaison with Surrey County Council, we demonstrated that the development would reduce the amount of traffic using the site, designed an access to modern standards, with footway connections to the existing network. There was no highways reason for refusal although the many objectors raised concerns about highways matters that the Inspector dismissed with reference to our report.
