This site had a long history of trying to gain permission for the change of use of the office building (last used in 2000) into residential. Due to a change in the parking restrictions there was no longer an objection on parking grounds. I sought a legal opinion from a barrister from 39 Essex Chambers to support the application. and consent was granted for 2 applications – one for change of use into 2 flats and one for change of use into 1 house.
I assisted an architect by drafting a covering letter to support a planning application for the demolition of an existing garage and erection of a single-storey (plus basement and attic accommodation) 3-bedroom detached house with associated cycle and refuse storage. I provided full justification as to why the application should be approved. Full planning permission granted within 8 weeks.
I was contacted by the owner of a flat who moved into her property in 2012 but at the time the developer had not discharged any of the conditions attached to the original permission dating from 2011. I applied to remove a number of the conditions as they were no longer applicable and to provide details for the materials, refuse, cycle parking and car club membership. All details approved.
