HC Deb 03 April 1962 vol 657 c27W
49. Sir P. Agnew

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs why, in giving his decision on the appeal by Mr. G. Thomas against the rejection of his application for planning permission for the erection of a bungalow on land at Dormston, near Inkberrow, Worcestershire, he overrode the views of the local planning committee of Pershore Rural District Council, the county planning authority, the architects' advisory panel and the report of his inspector who conducted the local inquiry, that the bungalow as designed would injure the character of its rural surroundings.

Dr. Hill

I did not consider that the objections to the novel design of a bungalow to be built on a cul-de-sac on the outskirts of a village were strong enough to justify refusing permission.
