We recently had success for local residents in objecting to new housing in a village in Oxfordshire, where planning officers had recommended approval but we helped persuade the Planning Committee to refuse. In that project the developer appealed and the appeal was dismissed, on the grounds we had given.
We have repeated the success for residents: again, an application had been recommended for approval, Councillors refused permission, and the subsequent appeal has been dismissed - and again for the reasons we set out.
This shows how presenting a careful argument based on thorough interpretation of planning policies can make the difference to whether permission is granted or not.
