Appeal Ref APP/C1570/D/18/3218840


Committee to note that the decision to refuse application UTT/18/170/HHF was appealed and the appeal was dismissed with the following conclusion:


I have found that the proposed parking provision would not have an adverse effect on highway safety, but have found that the cumulative additions would have an adverse effect on the character and appearance of the original dwelling and surrounding streetscene. This would be so significant that even taking into consideration PSED [Public Sector Equality Duty], I dismiss the appeal.
