9.   Supplementary Estimate to Cover Costs Awarded Against the Council in Appeals - Y/103/18/PL and EP/148/20/PL 

  • Planning permission was refused for applications Y/103/18/PL
  • and EP/148/20/PL. Both decisions were taken by the Development Control
  • Committee (DCC) and were contrary to the advice of officers. In deciding the
  • subsequent appeals, the Inspector has concluded that the Council acted
  • unreasonably in refusing planning permission and has awarded costs against the
  • Council.
  •  
  •  
  •  
  • This award follows an award of costs for BE/69/19/OUT in May
  • 2020 (a decision also taken at Development Control contrary to the officer
  • recommendation). This award of costs (£11,400) was paid out of the Department’s
  • budget. A Supplementary Estimate is now sought to pay these further costs as
  • the Department budget is unable to accommodate these significant additional
  • payments.
