Permission Granted - The erection of an Agricultural Storage Building

Agricultural Gainsborough Road, Everton, Nottinghamshire

This project required us to put forward the initial planning application, with full plans and elevation drawings and then a subsequent planning appeal. 

Our client has an agricultural contractors business which has been established for 30 years. He wanted the ability to store machinery in close proximity to his home on his own land, rather than in a variety of locations off site.

We applied for planning permission for the erection of a storage building in August 2017. The application was initially refused with the principle objections being; its impact upon the countryside and wider landscape and also on the basis that although evidence had been submitted setting out it had been a viable business for 30 years, the LPA still required further clarification and believed it would be used for commercial purposes non-related to agriculture. Post decision making by the Planning Authority, on appeal, a further Highway objection was also included.

At appeal, a Planning Inspector agreed with GraceMachin that the proposal was viable and that the impact upon the countryside/landscape would not be severe. However, he did agree that the Highway impact did justify the refusal of planning permission.

We then undertook further detailed work with a Highways Consultant to address the concerns of the Highway Authority and a second application was submitted in April 2018. Further negotiations took place with the Highways Authority and this application was approved in June 2018.
