Vicarage Road, Poulton le Fylde

Mary Clemence acted as expert witness on behalf of the local planning authority at a public inquiry dealing with an appeal against the refusal of planning permission for a major development close to the heart of a conservation area in Poulton le Fylde. In dismissing the appeal, the appointed Inspector found that the proposed church hall and primary health care buildings would fail to preserve or enhance the character or appearance of the conservation area or the setting of an adjacent listed building.
