Protection of employment land

A proposal to develop 125 dwellings on land forming part of an industrial estate in Alnwick was dismissed on appeal – albeit there was no dispute that the ‘tilted’ balance was engaged - in light of recently-made policy in the Alnwick and Denwick Neighbourhood Plan and changed policy in the National Planning Policy Framework (published at the close of the inquiry) protecting land in employment use (APP/P2935/17/3190575). The decision can be found here. Simon Pickles advised and represented Northumberland County Council on this appeal.
