The owner of the property submitted a further application which the Council refused on 3 grounds – design, lack of cycle space and lack of financial contribution towards trees. We submitted another appeal and applied for an award of costs against the Council. We were successful on all grounds with planning permission being approved for the new 3 bedroom dwelling and the Inspector agreeing with us that the Council had been unreasonable and awarded full costs relating to two of the reasons for refusal. A great result.
Cameron Jones Planning was instructed to write an appeal statement and submit the appeal against refusal of permission for a new dwelling. Whilst the appeal was dismissed it was only on one minor design issue with the Inspector agreeing that issues related to concept of two properties, the formation of the rear extension, the proposed living conditions (i.e. room sizes), the formation of the dormer, the bins, and the outlook from No.31 were all acceptable.
