The owner contacted me following refusal of two planning applications. We advised what we considered could be approved and re-submitted a joint planning application for a two storey rear extension to two adjoining properties. We wrote a statement to support the application, completed the application form and submitted the application on behalf of the owners. We had to negotiate hard with the planners and sought amendments for the application after the planners recommended refusal. One month after the decision was meant to be given, we were granted planning permission.
