  • Hyndburn Borough Council (14 011 435)

    Statement Upheld Planning applications 31-Mar-2015

    Summary: Mr X complains the Council failed to tell him about his neighbour's application for an extension so he could not raise any objections. Based on the evidence it seems likely the Council did write to Mr X. There is fault in the Council's decision to grant prior approval for the extension as it did not apply prior approval permitted development rules to the proposed development. However the Council has negotiated with Mr X's neighbour and the extension now complies with the relevant permitted development rules. Therefore there is no outstanding injustice to Mr X.

    Statement Upheld Planning applications 31-Mar-2015
