This article follows the saga of continuing efforts by Barratt plc and private developers “the Sprys”, to gain planning permission for an enabling development, ostensibly to secure the future of “at risk” Hamsterley Hall in County Durham. The first appeal decision to consider an enabling development proposal under the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) was examined in the Journal of Planning and Environmental Law in December 2012 and now a second appeal on a revised Hamsterley Hall proposal has taken place and calls for analysis.
