We were instructed to advise and prepare the supporting planning statement for extensive extensions to a detached dwelling in East Sheen. Plus the submission of a Certificate of Lawfulness for an outbuilding. All approved within 8 weeks.
Dwelling located within the Green Belt, a Flood Zone and partially in a Conservation Area. The application was for the demolition of the existing home and the erection of a new dwelling with a detached garage, a swimming pool in the grounds and associated parking and landscaping.
We were instructed by the architects to support the application with a planning statement and provide general advice. Although the Council did not support the contemporary design and refused the application we have submitted an appeal and sought barrister support.
We represented the applicant at an Appeal Hearing and were successful in arguing that the replacement dwelling would not be inappropriate development within the Green Belt. The Inspector also found the Council acted unreasonably by adding one of the reasons for refusal and awarded partial costs.
New dwellinghouse with detached garage and associated parking and landscaping following the demolition of the existing house and detached garage.
We were instructed by the architects to support an application within a village in West Berkshire to demolish a house and redevelop it with a contemporary dwelling. After negotiating with the Council officer and slightly amending the scheme this was approved within 4 months of submission.
We submitted two applications for this property near Clapham Common in Wandsworth – one for full planning permission and one for a permitted development application. Both were granted. The client then wanted to knock down the whole house but retain the façade so we submitted a further application for this proposal, following a positive pre-application submission.
Granted planning permission without any amendments.
We submitted an application for an extension to a new build house in the Green belt near Kingston.
The application was approved without any amendments.
There is much history with this house seeking extensions to make it suitable for the C21st. We submitted an application which was refused and then allowed on appeal within 1 week. We have also submitted two other applications, one which has been approved and one still waiting a decision.
The scheme involved: demolition of existing two-storey rear extension and construction of single-storey and first floor rear extensions, extension of roof and raising ridge, installation of rooflights, replacement windows, demolition and part replacement of existing garage and demolition of front boundary wall/fence and replacement with new boundary wall.
Following approval of listed building consent, we were requested to assist with discharging the conditions. They were very detailed and complicated but after much negotiation the conditions were granted and the owner was able to build out the extensions to the Grade II listed building.
We submitted a planning application for the conversion of a building from 4 flats to 2 flats and a two storey side and rear extension. The Council refused the application but the Inspector agreed that there was no harm to the conservation area or the locally listed building (BTM – Building of Townscape Merit).
I was approached following approval for 5 flats on the site. However, the addition of a further flat required a fresh application with a number of supporting documents including sunlight/daylight, highways issues and negotiation on financial contributions for affordable housing. After a lengthy process with the LPA, planning permission was granted.
Part single storey, part 2 storey rear extension and existing integral garage conversion to habitable space to this detached house in the St Margarets Conservation Area..
Permission had already been refused so I was asked to advise on how to amend the scheme to gain permission. I submitted a fresh application and the application was granted planning permission..
