Man wins Cowling caravan siting plans appeal
3:20pm Wednesday 25th December 2013 in News
A man has won an appeal to keep a caravan on a site in Cowling.
Andrew Brooks challenged an enforcement notice issued by Craven District Council regarding a static caravan at Stunstead in Long Lane.
The council served an enforcement notice earlier this year, saying the caravan had taken the form of a single dwelling house through alterations and an extension.
The notice required the caravan to be permanently removed from the land, along with the alterations, extension and all domestic items.
Although planning inspector BS Rogers felt the container – a bathroom, porch and cupboards – could be considered an operational development, Mr Rogers ruled: “In my view, what is present on site does not amount to a dwelling house. This leads me to conclude the appeal should succeed.”
The inspector quashed the notice.
