Appeal Success – With Costs Awarded

In March 2014 a Planning Inspector allowed an appeal in Swansea that retains the use of a building for Muslim prayer. In acting as agents for the appeal and appearing at the appeal hearing, Director of CDN Planning Graham Carlisle was able to demonstrate that not only were the Local Authority incorrect to refuse permission, but that they acted unreasonably in doing so. As a consequence, the Inspector awarded full costs to the appellants.
