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.
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.
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.

We are attending an appeal hearing for a variation of the approved scheme.

I was approached to write the statement and submit an appeal following refusal of planning permission for an extension to the roof. The appeal was dismissed but the Inspector accepted my argument that the roof extension would not cause harm to the butterfly roof. The only contentious issue was the size of the rooms which can be easily rectified and another application to be submitted shortly.
