Car Turntable

Vehicle Turntable Car

In an interesting appeal decision in the Surrey Green Belt a Planning Inspector has allowed the creation of a vehicle access including a vehicle turntable, together with the refurbishment of an existing Grade II Listed cottage.

The Inspector concluded that due to the rural location of the dwelling it was highly probable that any occupant of the property would own/use a car and the provision of a small on-site parking place would give the occupants of the dwelling safe onsite parking for a small car as the alternative would be to park of the main road, which would obstruct the free flow of traffic and have an adverse impact on highway safety. As such the proposed vehicle parking area and car turntable would have the potential to improve highway safety and, taken together with the refurbishment of the listed building, produced an acceptable scheme.
