230 – Appeal Decision: Stationing of Caravans – Land at Rakes Cottage,
      Mouzell, Dalton-in-Furness

The Assistant Director (Regeneration) reported on the Inspector’s decision on the
above appeal which had been heard at a Public Inquiry on 6 th July, 2005 and he
attached details of the appellant’s claim for costs. Whilst the appeal was allowed the
Assistant Director (Regeneration) felt that there were matters on which he wished to
comment where there was encouragement for the local authority and which showed
that it was justified in taking this action.
In Paragraph 12, the Inspector had concluded that the available evidence did not
demonstrate that the use had commenced ten years or more before the issuing of
the notice and therefore, the appeal on ground (d) (that the breach was immune from
enforcement) must fail. The Assistant Director (Regeneration) was aware that some
Members were concerned that Mr Barry would be able to show that he had a lawful
use and that this action was automatically doomed and likely to lead to a significant
claim for costs. This had not proven to be the case.

The planning permission that the Inspector felt he had to grant was a personal one to
Mr Barry, not even to his partners or any other immediate dependents. The
Inspector had agreed with the Council that the siting of the caravan was contrary to
the aim of the countryside protection policies in both the Borough Local Plan and the
Cumbria Structure Plan, as well as in national guidance. However he had concluded
that permission should be granted because the considerable number of years that
Mr Barry had lived at the site had led him to believe that his occupation of the land
was not a cause of serious concern to the authority. He had felt that this long
occupation was a strong argument for granting a personal permission, which was
lent support by the Human Rights Act. The important point was that if this action had
not been taken, an unrestricted caravan site in the open countryside could have
become established in perpetuity, which would have set a very dangerous
precedent.

Mr Barry’s agent had made an extensive claim for costs at the Inquiry, but these had
been generally dismissed by the Inspector. The only justifiable claim that the
Inspector had found was a relatively small matter of some photographs and a part of
the evidence of the Enforcement Officer that had been submitted on the day of the
Inquiry but should in the Inspector’s eye have been submitted beforehand. The
intention in submitting this information had been to assist the Inspector but in
hindsight it had conflicted with an Inquiry’s Procedure Rule that nothing fresh should
be produced on the day.

The appeal had therefore been allowed but the planning permission had a condition
limiting occupation to the appellant, thus preventing it becoming a permanent
caravan site. Only minimal costs had been awarded against the authority.

RESOLVED:- That the report of the Assistant Director (Regeneration) be noted.

231 – Appeal Decision: Felling of Sycamore Tree – 9 Infield Gardens, Barrow-
      in-Furness

The Assistant Director (Regeneration) reported that the decision of the Secretary of
State on this appeal, together with the report of the Officer from the Government
Office who had visited the site was attached to his report. The decision to allow the
appeal was based on two primary considerations:-

      A.    The Officer had considered the tree to have restricted visibility from
            beyond the limits of the estate and he did not, therefore accept the
            contention that it contributed to the attractiveness of the main Abbey
            Road approach to the town.
      B.    With regard to its long-term prospects the Officer had not been
            persuaded that it was imminently dangerous but he had acknowledged
            that the Council’s own expert (from Capita) had stated that it was ‘in
            decline’. The Officer from the Government Office had therefore,
            concluded that, whilst decisions made in the past to refuse had been
            entirely reasonable, time had moved on and the age of the tree, given its
            compromised amenity value, justified its removal and replacement. He
            had hesitated before going against two previous appeal decisions but
            had pointed out that they had been made respectively over 10 and over
            20 years ago and that there was now an arboricultural opinion
            significantly admitting that there was a question mark over the long-term
            future of the tree.

The appeal had, therefore, been allowed subject to the planting of two replacement
trees, of a size and species and at locations to be specified by the Borough Council.
The Assistant Director (Regeneration) would be having discussions with the owner
and the arboricultural adviser on these replanting arrangements.

The Assistant Director (Regeneration) considered that the decision to allow the
appeal subject to the requirement to plant two replacement trees was a fair decision
and was in the proper spirit of Tree Preservation Orders, whereby they should be
seen as tools for the management of trees, to ensure that they can be regenerated
and make a contribution to amenity in perpetuity.

RESOLVED:- That the report of the Assistant Director (Regeneration) be noted.

     of alternative modes of transport to the private car.

shown on plan number 2005/1121.

Representations received and the results of consultations were reported.

The applicant attended the meeting and made representations to the Committee.

RESOLVED:- That planning permission be refused for the following reasons:-

      Reason No. 1

      The submitted scheme does not achieve the required visibility requirements of
      15m x 2.4m. Approval of the scheme would thereby result in a situation
      detrimental to Highway Safety.

      Reason No. 2

      The 10m wide opening would unacceptably harm the enclosed character of
      the rural lane, contrary to guidance which seeks to protect the rural character
      of the countryside. Therefore the scheme is contrary to the aims of the
      Barrow Borough Local Plan Review 1996-2006 policy D1.

      Reason No. 3

      The large garage size and extensive hardstanding represents an excessive
      scale of development to the unacceptable detriment of the rural character of
      the area. Therefore the scheme is contrary to the aims of the Barrow
      Borough Local Plan Review 1996-2006 policy D1.
