  • Cambridge City Council (16 002 481)

    Statement Upheld Planning applications 29-Mar-2017

    Summary: The Council was significantly at fault in the way in which it determined the application by Mr and Mrs F's neighbours for a rear extension. If not for this fault, officers might have invited revised proposals. But, the Council was not at fault in the way in which it subsequently considered revocation of the planning permission. Thus the injustice to Mr and Mrs F was limited to their justifiable sense of outrage at being treated unfairly, uncertainty and time and trouble.
