Planning objections must be based on planning policy, not local prejudice. No one has a right to retain a view. That is well known in planning but not widely understood among the general population. Since the NPPF came into force, with its "presumption in favour of development", LPAs are nervous of being taken to appeal and are therefore more likely to fold when faced with determined and skilled developers. Your LPA should have a Core Strategy or Local Plan, and your parish might have an NDP, which would help resist the onslaught of the urbanisation of our rural counties, but not if there are no safeguarding policies contained therein. If there are, use them when objecting.
