Public Inquiry

The Minister for the Environment, Deputy Steve Luce, called a Public Inquiry into the above application and appointed Mr Philip Staddon BSc Dip MBA (Distinction) MRTPI as the independent inspector.

Helen Wilson was appointed as the independent officer of the Inquiry, working under the direction of the inspector.

The Inquiry took place on Tuesday 10 May 2016 and lasted 2 days.

The Decision

In his report, Mr. Staddon recommended that the Minister should refuse the planning application on the following three grounds:
  • the proposed building of eleven homes on this remote headland site conflicts with Island Plan policies to concentrate development in the built-up area
  • the development conflicts with the policy to establish a high level of protection from development of the Green Zone and specifically excludes the redevelopment of glasshouses
  • the applicant’s ‘enabling or linked development’ case is not accepted, as the proposal fails to meet the required criteria of the policy
