An appeal has been allowed today for a housing development on the edge of a village in the South Hams. The site is outside of a recognised development boundary BUT very well connected to the village and beyond. The site is somewhat unusual in location and is also surrounded by a range of other land uses not normally found in a rural location, this made the site unique and despite being away from the development boundary was nonetheless considered a sustainable location and not harmful to the countryside aspect. In reaching the conclusion on the appeal, the Inspector noted the combined factors that led to the site being accepted as a sustainable location and that there would be no visual harm. The appeal was allowed with standard conditions.
