This case concerned a proposal by Gladman Developments Ltd for a 119 dwelling development on a greenfield adjacent to the village of South Cave in the East Riding of Yorkshire.
The critical issues were:
1) whether the Council was able to demonstrate a 5 year housing land supply, which in turn raised important issues of principle as to the approach to assessing the deliverability of sites which are allocated in a newly adopted local plan but which do not yet have planning permission; and
2) the effect of the development on the landscape, in particular from viewpoints on the Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trail.
In a decision letter dated 13 March 2017 the Inspector dismissed the appeal.
Charles Banner appeared for the local planning authority, East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
