We were appointed to provide advice and secure permission for a new dwelling at the rear of this site in the London Borough of Ealing in 2014. While some additional dwellings had been erected nearby, there was a general planning policy presumption against backland sites. We successfully justified that an additional house was acceptable in planning terms and that the proposed design was acceptable.
Planning permission was secured in 2015.
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.
