Inquiries

Land at Jury Lane, Sidlesham, Chichester

DATE: 02 Oct 2007

The site had been allocated as a travelling show persons’ site and planning permission for this use had been granted. It was being used by caravans occupied by migrant workers.  The Council served enforcement notices in the alternative since it was unclear whether the planning permission (containing conditions which were being breached) had been implemented.  The Inspector found that the planning permission had not been implemented and upheld the enforcement notice which alleged development without planning permission.  He rejected a ground (a) appeal because it would be undesirable to lose a site which could be used to meet the needs of travelling show people in accordance with C4/2007. 

Richard Langham appeared for the local planning authority.
