I was instructed by a group of residents who were opposed to the development of a 5 storey block of flats in very close proximity to their flats. The building is Grade II listed and in a Conservation Area. The planning application was reported to Planning Committee and deferred following from our extensive letter. I arranged for the Committee members to undertake a site visit. However, at the following Planning Committee the member resolved to granted planning permission. A disappointing result.
I undertook a site visit with the architect and drafted the planning statement for the development of a new floor to a building in a Conservation Area. Although this was submitted to the Council, the owners changed their future plans and this was withdrawn.
