9/11/20 North Warwickshire and South Leicestershire College's appeal (for development of up to 195 dwellings together with the provision of a 3G sports pitch, associated public open space, and other green infrastructure, and landscaping, at Hinckley Road, Nuneaton) has been allowed, with a full award of costs.
Richard Humphreys QC represented the College.
The Inspector noted that: "while the development would lie outside any designated strategic housing site, I find that the Borough Plan does not provide a defensible reason for its refusal, even if a 5-year supply of housing sites exists".
