Successful Planning Appeal for Thomas Jones Homes

SCP recently assisted Thomas Jones Homes with their successful planning appeal against the refusal of planning permission for a new residential development comprising 9 dwellings off Grappenhall Road near Stockton Heath, Warrington.

SCP were able to successfully convince the Planning Inspectorate that Warrington Borough Council were incorrect to refuse the application for reasons relating to the achievability of visibility splays from the proposed site access, and the likelihood for parking within the visibility splays. Our submitted evidence was referred to extensively in the decision notice.

In addition, our client also received a full award of appeal costs from the Inspector after we were able to demonstrate that the Council were unreasonable to refuse the original planning application. We are now continuing to advise Thomas Jones in relation to the detailed design and delivery of the project.
