planning appeal re pedestrian, guests and onroad traffic safety falls on deaf ears when my brother could have been killed this year as a pedestrian badly injured where reversing cars cannot manoeuvre frontways and cannot see before they head across pavement onto dangerous road with 2 on road parking vehicles to their right left reducing visibility and a dangerous bend to their right. They end up in the middle of the road. Surely a Risk Management Assessment should be implemented lawfully under health and safety, environmental health planning conditions. Can Planning be taken to task for approving this

Did you object to this during the period allowed for objections?

This would (shopuld?) have fallen under a 'Highways' report as part of the planning process. You should be able to look on the local authority website's planning search facility (they all have them) under 'documents' for that application and se what they said. Health & Safety isn't, per se, anything to do with planning.
There is no process to make a planning appeal against an approval. Maybe the highways department should be asked to consider altering local on-street parking provision.
Atheist, Sorry to disagree but :-

Quoting from the link you provided, Danny.
"Only the person who made the application can appeal. If you did not apply, you can comment on an appeal instead."
Atheist, thanks for that.Seems a bit harsh that an objector cannot appeal as it is unlikely that the person making the application would object to it being passed.
The trouble is that if appeals against approval were to be allowed, the whole system would probably grind to a halt. There is a presumption in favour of approval unless it can be established that there wold be significant harm to intersts of acknowledged inoportance. As long as the LPA took everything relevant into account and followed the book in complying with legislation and procedure, then their decision would stand.
I am not sure that the number of cars is germane. A single car might come and go several times in a day. B and B cars are more likely to arrive late afternoon/evening and not move again until after breakfast the next day when they will leave.
