Planning permission granted for Rutland equestrian development

Equestrian Land East of Cemetery Lane, Manton, Rutland

GraceMachin have been successful in winning an appeal for new equestrian development on high ground in Manton, adjacent to Rutland Water.

Following the refusal of planning permission by Rutland County Council in July 2017, an objective case for allowing the development was made at appeal and considered by the Planning Inspectorate.

In August 2018 the appeal was allowed for the erection of a stable block measuring circa 80m² / 860ft² excluding roof canopy and concrete apron. Its construction being of brick and block (timber clad) with timber pitched roof. Ridge height being 4.4m.

We successfully argued that the development was not an 'incongruous element in its landscape setting and as a result would dominate long distance view from the surrounding area' as argued by the County Council.

This case identifies that even when planning applications are refused by local planning authorities a robust appeal submission can result in a successful development outcome.

GraceMachin Planning & Property specialise in obtaining new equestrian development across the East Midlands and recommend bespoke planning strategies and designs to individual sites.
