The Council's formal case related to the effect upon highway safety and the local highway network. The Inspector agreed with the appellant that the proposal would not compromise highway safety nor have a severe effect upon the free flow of traffic. The Inspector concluded that the range of social, economic and environmental benefits carried considerable weight and that these gave greater force in the arguments for granting permission.
