Moorlands, Littleborough - Condition required additional privacy screens

Planning consent was granted to convert ancillary living accommodation into a self-contained house.  Onerous planning conditions were imposed by the Council including additional privacy screens and fencing as well as removing all permitted development rights.

We successfully argued that additional privacy screens were not necessary as timber fencing had been installed.  The Inspector considered it unnecessary to remove permitted development rights for porches and roof alterations, but removed permitted development rights for extensions (Class A) and outbuildings (Class E).
