We submitted a planning application for a new external staircase to a house in a Conservation Area. Although a previous application for the site had been highly controversial this application was approved within the 8 week deadline.
Richmond Upon Thames
A rear extension had been built slightly higher than that approved owing to an error by the architect and the Council refused planning permission to retain the extension as constructed. The house owner instructed a barrister to draft the appeal statement and we managed the process and responded to further queries from the Inspectorate. The appeal was allowed and planning permission granted for the extension as constructed.
We drafted a letter of objection for a householder concerned at the size and potential overlooking from a neighbour’s proposed extension. Regrettably the Council approved the extension.
We have been providing planning advice and support on a number of applications and appeals for extensions to a Grade II listed building. Whilst some applications have not been successful we finally gained planning permission for a 3 storey side extension and glazed rear extension. We are attending an appeal hearing for a variation of the approved scheme.
We were instructed to write the appeal statement and manage the appeal following refusal of planning permission for a part single and part three storey rear extension, roof terrace, basement enlargement with lightwell to rear and alterations to windows to a BTM in a Conservation Area.

We provided a full report setting out the likelihood of gaining planning permission of changing a property from 5 flats into a single family dwellinghouse taking into consideration the policies at Richmond in relation to the loss of flats.
