A crucial test case has turned down an Appeal by the owner of a Party House in Greenway Lane, Bath, and hence he must close it in September. Importantly, the Government Inspector refused the Appeal on three counts, not just the complaints of intolerable nuisance reported by neighbours. In their evidence, the Council cited also the illegal change of use and the undesirable reduction in homes for long term residents; and the Inspector agreed. In Party House terms, FoBRA believes this will be seen to be as important as the seminal "Moore v SSCLG and Suffolk Coastal District Council" case in 2012.
