Planning ‘appeal’ decision on Boston boatyard

April 7, 2010 | By | Reply More

A 3 day Planning Inquiry was held at the beginning of  March 2010 to assess appeals against the two refused Outline Planning Applications for development of Boston’s Boatyard. Both appeals were heard simultaneously.

Attached is a copy of the Inspector’s decision on the above appeals together with a copy of the decision on an application for an award of costs.

The Planning Inspector, Colin Tyrrell states that “the both appeals have been dismissed”

His full report concludes by stating that:-

“development of the site as envisaged in the applications would result in a substantial increase in vehicular movements giving rise to prejudice to public convenience and to interference with the free flow of traffic and this would outweigh the benefits which would otherwise accrue. The extra congestion would be contrary to Core Strategy Policies CS28 and CS34…..”
