Land off Popes Lane, Sturry, Kent

The development proposed of the erection of up to 140 Dwellings, with public open space, landscaping, sustainable drainage system, and vehicular access has been dismissed.

Having regard to all the submissions before me, I consider the main issues in the appeal to be as follows:
▪ whether the district has an adequate supply of deliverable land for housing;
▪ the effects of the proposed development on the highway network and safety;
▪ the effects on the character and appearance of the area and its landscape;
▪ the effects on the setting of nearby listed buildings;
▪ the effects on ‘best and most versatile’ agricultural land;
▪ and whether the appeal site is a suitable location for the proposed development, having regard for the CDLP’s policies for the location of housing.
