Environment secretary John Gummer has granted planning permission for seven years to Garsington Opera for continued use of land at Garsington Manor for its opera festival.

The decision follows the public inquiry and inspectors' recommendation that approval should be given.

The public inquiry followed a planning appeal by Garsington Opera Ltd and Mr and Mrs L Ingrams against the failure of South Oxfordshire DC to reach a decision on their application for permission for the erection of temporary structures and the change of use of land and buildings for public events including a maximum of 20 opera performances.

The inspector had recommended that the appeal should be allowed subject to conditions, including limiting the number of public events to 35, ensuring that acoustic screens are in place before performances take place and specifying working hours for setting up and dismantling structures associated with the Opera Festival.
