Land at Icen Farm, Icen Lane, Bincombe, Weymouth

DATE: 21 Jul 2010

An enforcement notice required the demolition of a half-finished building in an AONB. This had the potential to be 3 dwellinghouses.  Planning permission had been granted for an agricultural worker’s dwelling but the Inspector agreed with the local planning authority that the development materially departed from this.  He also found that the planning permission had not been lawfully implemented.  In relation to the ground (a) appeal he found that the appellant had no agricultural need for anything and that there was no other justification for permitting this development in an AONB.  Costs were awarded against the appellant. 

Richard Langham appeared for the local planning authority.
