We were approached by the client who wished to obtain planning permission for the erection of a new dwelling to the side of their property. We obtained pre-application advice from the planning officer and agreed that by extending the existing dwelling at ground floor level, we could propose a larger adjacent dwelling. Permission was obtained in 2015 within statutory timescales.
Following extensive discussions with officers and despite significant local objection our application was approved without the need to go to planning committee. Following the approval, the team were able to secure further increases to the internal floor space, with the most recent approval for a large three double bedroom dwelling. The team’s local experience and tenacious negotiating skills were crucial in securing our permission and I cannot thank them enough.
