York Gardens Para 79

An interesting Green Belt planning case for a new dwelling within the walled garden of an historic listed country house on the outskirts of York. To see or not to see, that is the question!

Lots of interesting ingredients at play in forming a case for a new dwelling on this site. Openness, principle of isolation, principle of inappropriate development in the Green Belt, impact on the setting of a designated Heritage Asset and a plethora of opportunities for enhancement and for an appropriately conceived dwelling to enhance the setting.

In cases like this we have to test some of the policy considerations with the LPA in an effort to de-risk the process in stages.
