Building upon a previous success in gaining planning permission for a Game Farm and a new storage building in the Kent countryside, the Murphy Associates team put forward a sound business plan demonstrating a clear functional and financial need for the manager/worker to live on-site for a three-year period in order to establish his business on this new site.
On Bonfire Night it was all fireworks with opposition from the local parish council, a tense debate about the nature of the business, the site, hindsight. The justification was accept by the very firm Rural Advisor. The Head of Development Management was firm but fair in his defence of the proposal.
After a good 50 minutes - the vote! Ashford Borough Council Planning Committee members voted 9-5 in favour!
This decision was hugely important. We have a very happy client who now has 3 yrs to prove that his business can and will be successful!
"Thanks for all your hard work!"
Thats good enough for us! We also have to thank the Case Officer and DM team for their justified support.
