We are pleased to report that Bowbridge Homes’ appeal against refusal of their application has been allowed. Ably marshalled through the process by nineteen47, who led on planning and layout design, the Public Inquiry took place in March. Unusually, Charnwood Borough Council withdraw its reasons for refusal following cross-examination by Bowbridge’s Counsel, Isabella Tafur of Francis Taylor Building. Landscape evidence was provided by Influence Landscape Planning and Design, and ecology evidence was provided by RammSanderson Ecology Ltd. Highways was not a reason for refusal, despite considerable local opposition. A small but challenging site given the topography.
