Perhaps it isn’t widely understood that it can happen since it doesn’t happen very often. However, sometimes it does happen; an inspector will delete another inspector’s condition. Appeal case DCS Number 400-012-162 illustrates the point.
This case concerns a roof extension to a property in southwest London to provide two flats, planning permission for which had been gained at appeal. The original inspector had attached a condition to the permission (DCS Number 400-012-174) requiring the development to be car-free. The subsequent inspector, however, was persuaded that a parking survey submitted by the appellants provided clear evidence demonstrating a low level of parking stress and that additional car parking for two vehicles could be acceptably accommodated in the surrounding area. Accordingly, she deleted the condition.
