Planning inspector rejects appeal over plans to demolish former March mayors' home
A March charity's plan to earn cash with the development of a benefactor's former home has been dashed after a planning inspector rejected an appeal.
March Educational Foundation had hoped the planning inspector would overturn a decision by Fenland District Council's planning committee last November to refuse plans to build 41 flats and four houses on the site of the home of former March mayors George and Patsy Brewin.
However, the appeal was rejected this week by planning inspector Zoe Raygen, who decided that claims the development at Brewin Oaks, City Road, would not have an adverse impact on the character and appearance of the area.
