Hello, thanks for your question. My name is Tony, I should be able to answer this for you.
There is no regulation etc., that requires a space between village boundaries before planning can be granted in that area.
Each planning authority has clear knowledge of their own area and their own planning policies operate within that area.
If you tell me a little more about the issue I might be able to assist more?
Is there anything more I can assist with about this?
Are you happy with the service this morning?
