Land at Wharf Road, Broxbourne

DATE: 15 Jul 2008

The site was one of a number of leisure plots in the Green Belt and the Lea Valley Regional Park. Some were already lawfully used for the stationing of gypsy caravans.  In relation to others the local planning authority had obtained a pre-emptive injunction to prevent the stationing of caravans.   There was a significant unmet need for gypsy sites in the borough.  The site was vulnerable to flooding.  The appeal was held to be invalid as the purported appellant had no interest in the land. 

Richard Langham appeared for the local planning authority.
