We have been refused planning permission, [ on our garden ] despite there being no objections regarding either the house design or by the neighbours.
The area we live in has been designated a Low Growth Area and we have been told that we can only build if we build an”Affordable House”! This seems like political blackmail to us.
Surely as LGA there should be a balance between normal development and A.H? If not, can anyone point us in the direction where we can find hard and fast rules/regulations regarding A.H. To date we cannot find any and wonder if each authority is able to make up their own rules as and when they see fit.
Your help would be very appreciated as we are now going to appeal, but have no way of checking the validity of the authorities ruling.
