"A Broads Authority spokesman said there had been a change in approach from the planning inspectorate in 2016/2017, resulting in some “unexpected decisions”."

Or is this just another example of the BA being out of touch?

So reading between the lines, if the ba think the policy was contravened then the inspector disagrees with the policy... time to rewrite it. To balance the article though the BA whether they get it wrong or right do it expediently at least. Given the political pressures to build lots of new housing it’s hardly surprisingly the more typical authorities are struggling to resource the volume and complexities of applications, perhaps the barometer needs calibrating!

Freedom of information will show how much this has cost BA, as all succesfull apeals, costs will be awarded against BA.

I wonder if change of policy by BA to green light most/all planning is behind the “no appeals since Aug 17”.

The new Broads Local Plan has been submitted for examination by the Planning Directorate and Public Examination which gains weight as it passes through the system and when approved sets the standard for decisions.
Planning appeals have thrown up some surprising results around England in the past year or so and of course BA does offer pre submission advice and most local authorities make the point on refusing applications that applicants have not availed themselves to this service.

Seeking BA pre-submission advice in no way guarantees that, even if an application follows the advice provided to the letter, a planning application will be granted.  Advice comes with the caveat (and I paraphrase because I cannot remember the standard footnote to emails):  this advice is provided by a BA planning officer and the application remains subject to planning committee approval.

Without wishing to resurrect the National Parks debate, I suspect that the BA is attempting to interpret, implement and enforce planning law as it currently applies to National Parks.

That is quite true, no secrets there.

What worries me about the BA is the high turnover of staff in the planning office and I do question why?

There is a controvertial planning application at Oulton Broad for a marina extention. It will be interesting to see how that goes and whether the Authority steps back rather than face appeal costs.

High turnover in staff does not necessarily mean dissatisfaction - just as likely reflects a salary not commensurate with the job!

As far as the planning application at Oulton is concerned, does not seem very controversial to me!!!

In a recent post somewhere somebody had found guidance that Planning Authorities needed one Planning Officer for every 250 applications per year hence BA needed just one hence the quick turnaround especially those not having to go the the Planning Committee
