  1. Neighbour has objected to our plans for retrospective planning permission. We've been operating a 4 room bnb from our home and received a negative comment from adjacent property. Can an home help with advice on how to combat this as our livelihood depends on the income from the bnb? Here is a link to the planning application (comment can be read here too): https://eplanning.northlanarkshire.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=neighbourComments&keyVal=QS9E1BBAI8P00
  2. I saw an interesting note on social media, from a green belt campaigning group which reflected on the huge backlog of apps being handled by my LPA (each officer is handling over 100 cases, reportedly, and they are leaving/dropping like flies). The green belt campaigner (who's worried about a local development) commented: "If the LPA has failed to rule on the application within set time limits applicants can go straight to appeal and, in order not to prejudice developers, this leads to a presumption favour of development". 2 questions/discussion points: How does skipping the LPA's ruling body and going straight to the inspectorate "prejudice developers"? Is the consensus that exercising one's right to non-determination has a higher shot of being approved? (I assume because all the objectors and the parish council and the planning officer and all the other local numpties sticking their oar in are simply ignored as the application is assessed purely against the NPPF) My LPA is literally miles behind on my applications, having missed the deadlines wildly, so I am considering options.* *of course, the bummer with skipping the LPA is that you then enter the inspectorate's queue, which I assume is even worse/longer than the LPA's!
  3. A useful little checklist I cam across on my local COuncil website for people planning to object to a Planning Application, or trying to make a Planning Application bulletproof. What Is A Planning Consideration? Should you wish to comment on a current planning application, the following lists shows other considerations that will and will not normally be taken into account when considering a planning application Material Planning Considerations - what is normally taken into account? Relevant policies Overshadowing/Loss of light Overlooking/Loss of privacy Scale/Size Design/Appearance/Materials/Layout Dominance Highway/Pedestrian safety issues Traffic generation Site history Noise/Disturbance/Smells Local character Conservation (historic buildings) Loss of important open spaces Drainage issues Wildlife (particularly protected species such as bats or newts) Landscaping and trees Loss of important physical features Potential conditions Non-material Panning Considerations - What is not normally taken into account? Impact on property values Private property issues such as boundary dispute, access rights, damage caused to your property by a third property Matters covered by other legislation such as Licensing or Building Regulations The perceived morals/future intentions of developers Loss of a view Competition (ie new competitor business starting up) The above lists are by no means exhaustive but give an overview of the types of issues that would normally or not normally be considered.
