Appeal Win – Student Accommodation in Exeter

Cameron Jones Planning gained permission at planning appeal against Exeter City Council for the demolition of a garage workshop and the construction of four 3-storey (plus basement) purpose-built student accommodation units, numbering 26 bedrooms in total.

We worked with our client from pre-application, through application, to appeal, instructing and coordinating all relevant consultants and design negotiation. The LPA argued an over concentration of PBSA in the area which we counter-argued had no basis in the Development Plan. The Planning Inspector agreed with our case.

Appeal Success – Two storey and subterranean extensions in Hampton

Cameron Jones Planning successfully argued against the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames’s decision to refuse this application in the Hampton Village Conservation Area. Their decision was based on design, heritage, tree and ecology issues. We built a strong case against the Council’s mistaken view that the building is a locally listed heritage asset. With expert bat and arboricultural opinion, our planning appeal statement put a strong case for the two-storey rear, single storey side, and basement extensions. The Planning Inspector agreed with our arguments and allowed the appeal.

Permitted Development – 7 metres wide rear extension in Green Belt

Cameron Jones Planning were able to secure a Certificate of Lawfulness for this large riverside bungalow in Addlestone, Surrey. The dwelling had been subject to multiple historical extensions so determining the original required a lot of detective work. It was over the allowable extension limit under Green Belt policy so a PD compliant scheme was necessary. We demonstrated a scheme that was compliant with Class A of Schedule 2 (Part 1) of the General Permitted Development Order.

Permitted development for two-storey extension to Thames-side dwelling

A complicated scheme for a previously extended dwelling in the Green Belt near Egham. The dwelling was already over the allowable extension limit under Green Belt policy so a PD compliant scheme was necessary. We worked closely with the architect to develop a two-storey rear extension that would be compliant with Class A of Schedule 2 (Part 1) of the General Permitted Development Order. The Local Planning Authority granted the Certificate of Lawfulness.

Appeal success – reinstatement of Permitted Development rights

Cameron Jones Planning devised the appeal case against the refusal of Surrey Heath Borough Council to reinstate the Permitted Development rights for extensions and outbuildings at this large dwelling in the Green Belt. The rights had been removed as a condition of an application in 2007. The reinstatement application was refused on the grounds that allowing Permitted Development extensions would harm the character and visual amenity of the surrounding area. We argued that there was no clear justification for this condition, therefore failing the test of necessity and reasonableness. The Planning Inspector agreed with our argument and reinstated the rights. Our client is now able to build the detached garage in the grounds of their home.

Approval – Single Storey Rear Extension

A seemingly simple rear infill extension to a terraced Victorian dwelling in Midhurst, West Sussex was complicated by the discovery of a roosting Myotis bat. We worked closely with the Ecology Consultant on two surveys and updated the application with necessary mitigation measures. Following a lengthy decision process, we were able to secure approval for our client.
