Following the refusal the applicant appealed the decision and Harris Lamb were instructed to represent Dignity Funerals, who had a number of concerns with the proposed development, at the Hearing.

At the Hearing the Inspector’s attention was draw to a number of shortcomings with scheme, including its design, impact on residential amenity, and the consequences for Dignity’s operations.  The Appeal Decision has now been published and the Inspector agreed with the majority of concerns raised by Simon at the Hearing. The planning appeal was subsequently dismissed.
