Dartmoor National Park Authority wins "off-grid community" case

DATE: 12 Aug 2016

An "off-grid community," which has been living in a woodland in the Dartmoor National Park for over a decade, has lost its appeals against enforcement notices issued by Dartmoor National Park Authority and the refusal of its planning application. The inquiry represented a test case for the Authority's new policy on low impact development.

Stephen Whale of Landmark Chambers successfully represented the Authority at the inquiry.
