Airedon advised Gleeson regarding the refusal of an application to amend a condition on an outline consent that required the provision of an acoustic wall along both sides of the access road between two long gardens at Sutton in Ashfield.  Gleeson had originally indicated that this boundary would be fencing, however, in issuing the permission, one of the conditions was changed to require a wall rather than an appropriate boundary treatment.

Airedon provided evidence to the appeal that demonstrated that there would be no adverse acoustic impact from using an alternative boundary treatment, and that there was a great variety of treatments for access roads in the area meaning that it was not important that there was a wall acoustically or visually.  The Inspector concluded that there was no evidence that it was necessary to provide a wall rather than a suitable boundary treatment and allowed the appeal, amending the condition as appropriate.
