Planning approved for single-storey front extension to Brooklands Hotel restaurant in the Green Belt, Conservation Area, and Flood Zone

We provided the supporting heritage and planning statement for the extension and addition of glazing to existing exterior pillars to the Brooklands Hotel restaurant in Elmbridge. We then submitted the planning application and planning permission was approved within 4 months of submission.

The site is within the Green Belt, Conservation Area, and Flood Zone 3.

Planning Appeal allowed for the change of use from two flats to one house – Thames Ditton

We were instructed to draft the Grounds of Appeal following refusal of permission by Elmbridge Council for a building to change from two very dilapidated flats back into a dwelling house, for which it was originally constructed and is on a road of other dwellinghouses.  We argued that the revision of the property from two flats to a single family dwelling house would secure several benefits in terms of improvements to the interior of the building, demand for on-street parking, cycle parking, energy and waste refuse/recycling storage.

Success! Appeal allowed

Permission obtained for demolition of existing house and construction of new – Esher

Planning permission granted for detached two-storey house with rooms in the roof space, basement, new access and rear detached single-storey outbuilding following demolition of existing house in a conservation area.

We were instructed by the applicants following planning submission to respond to letters of objection.  We liaised with the case officer and wrote a letter of support to counteract the objections raised by local residents.  The application was duly granted planning permission.

Pre-application advice for a detached dwelling at the end of a garden Walton-on-Thames

We attended a site visit and advised on the likelihood of gaining planning permission for a new build house at the end of the garden of a semi-detached dwelling in Walton.  We advised the architects on the proposal and necessary amendments; drafted the planning statement and met with the Council’s planning officer to discuss the proposal.  The response was very positive and a planning application is to be submitted shortly.
