Update on Ladram Bay retrospective planning application

The Ladram Bay retrospective planning application to retain a section of the viewing deck erected without planning permission was withdrawn on Monday.

It was due to have been considered by the Planning Committee on Wednesday. Planning Officers had recommended refusal.

An enforcement notice was issued by EDDC on the 26th June 2019 seeking the removal of the raised platform, in its entirety. The notice took effect on the 01/08/2019 and a subsequent appeal was lodged. 

This appeal was dismissed on 17 August 2020 and the enforcement notice was upheld for the removal of the platform in its entirety due to its unacceptable visual impact, lack of planning policy support given the location of the site in a designated World Heritage Coast, AONB and Coastal Preservation Area.

The structure needs to be removed by the 17th March 2021.

Given the Carter history at Ladram Bay – What next?
