Tue, 02 Apr 2013

Tim Jones has won two appeals for Romany Gypsy appellants seeking planning permission to live on land that they owned in open countryside

In APP/L3815/A/12/2177735 Inspector Elizabeth Fieldhouse granted a 5-year planning permission for a private Gypsy and Traveller site. This was in respect of a site where an inspector had previously refused planning permission for the same appellant.

In APP/H2265/A/12/2182789 Inspector Paul Dignan granted permanent planning permission for a private Gypsy site, rejecting arguments that the Appellants should apply for accommodation at a public site.
