Anne Williams and William McBarnet successfully represent appellant at planning inquiry

June 22, 2021

The appellant had appealed the decision of the local council not to grant planning permission for the development of a low carbon home built in Bothenhampton, Dorset.

The inquiry was the result of a long-running dispute over whether the building broke local planning regulations.

Anne called 4 expert witnesses and the inquiry was held over a 4 day period in May.

In her report, the Planning Inspector found that the development did not harm the Conservation Area nor adversely impact neighbouring properties and granted planning permission.
