Bit of a long shot but has anyone ever applied and gained planning permission for Land which falls outside of the development boundary or formally known as the village envelope. I currently own a plot which falls just on the edge of the development boundary of my Village. As part of a Public consultation recently i requested for inclusion into the boundary but do not hold out much hope. I am advised that applying for planning permission as things stand will lead to a rejection due the Council protocal but wasn't sure at the appeal stage if i would have a chance or not,,,, I am prepared to play the waiting game but am a novice really with this sort of thing and am open to any advice/experince that people may have. Any influences out there with Braintree DC also would also be apprecited!
