We have recently been successful in obtaining planning permission, on appeal, for the erection of a stone stable in close proximity to a group of three listed buildings. The Council argued that the development would have a harmful effect on the setting of the listed buildings. However, the Planning Inspector disagreed and considered the design and use of sympathetic materials would maintain a harmonious relationship with the listed buildings. He also considered the development to not obscure long distant views of the listed buildings. The Inspector accepted the principle of allowing a stable in the Green Belt.
