Success – Appeal Allowed against refusal for expansion of dental practice in Sunninghill

We submitted a planning application for the change of use of a small shop unit into a dentist to expand a successful business in the heart of Sunninghill. The Council refused it due to potential harm to the vitality and viability of the shopping centre.  In March 2018, we submitted an appeal this was allowed in January 2019. The Inspector agreed with our argument that the new dentist would not harm the vitality of the shopping centre.
