Just as Christine was posting her blog yesterday on the Garden Cities vision, DCLG were posting on their website 2 more Secretary of State decision letters allowing 3 appeals for housing led schemes. These were appeals by Peel Investments (where the Inspector recommended refusal) at Worsley, Manchester and by Comparo and Welbeck Strategic Land for 2 schemes at Bishops Cleeve in Gloucestershire. In all these appeals, the part played by NPPF, against a background of housing under-supply is apparent. All 3 appeal sites were in countryside and although the localism voice was heard and respected, it was not followed. It will be interesting to see if a few more decisions like these will come through before the summer break.
