119 Lake Avenue

Location: London Borough of Havering

Objective:

Planning Insight was tasked to obtain planning permission for the subdivision, and erection of three additional detached house dwellings, on a site within a highly sought-after area.

Strategy:

During the determination of the previous application, we were approached by the Architect and client for assistance, due to the local planning authority raising concerns about the quantum and scale of the development.

We advised them to accept the refusal, so that the issues were clearly set out in the reasons for refusal and could be dealt with through a resubmission.

Our team reviewed the refusal and officer’s report, and we worked closely with the architect to redesign the scheme to overcome the objections. We retained the same number of dwellings, but amended the design to align more with the character of the area, reducing the impact on the neighbouring occupants.

We prepared a robust Planning Statement justifying the development and, following the submission, we closely liaised with the planning officers to ensure the application was determined in a timely manner.

Outcome:

Planning permission was successfully granted for the three dwellings, subject to s106 agreement.

Project highlights:

  • Closely working with the architect and client to amend the design, in response to a refusal.
  • No reduction in the number of units proposed.
  • Delivering an s106 agreement for smaller education contributions before CIL regulations came into force.

Client testimonial:

“Very pleased with the service provided by Planning Insight. Would happily recommend their expertise to anyone seeking planning permission”
