EDP supported Spitfire Properties Ltd in their recent appeal at Leamington Road, Broadway where the Inspector allowed 125 dwellings on the edge of the village in the AONB. Despite officer recommendation for approval, the scheme was dismissed at committee on a number of grounds, including the effect of the proposed development on the character and appearance of the area with particular reference to the local street scene and also the AONB.
As acknowledged by the Inspector, EDP’s landscape evidence successfully demonstrated that the impact on the broader landscape of the AONB would not be significantly detrimental and the excellence of the design would render the visual impact of the development acceptable even within the attractive area on the edge of the village in which the appeal site is situated.
The application was approved at appeal in November 2015.
