Land at Riverside, Wheathampstead

DATE: 13 Nov 2007

This case concerned one pitch for gypsy caravans on a site in the Green Belt. The appellant owned two houses in Luton.  The local planning authority contended that, if the appellant insisted in living in a caravan, he could station a caravan in the curtilage of one of these and use it as ancillary accommodation.  The Inspector accepted this and dismissed the appeal.  The appellant then failed to comply with the enforcement notice until compelled to do so by injunction. 

Richard Langham appeared for the local planning authority.
