Cameron Jones Planning devised the appeal case against the refusal of Surrey Heath Borough Council to reinstate the Permitted Development rights for extensions and outbuildings at this large dwelling in the Green Belt. The rights had been removed as a condition of an application in 2007. The reinstatement application was refused on the grounds that allowing Permitted Development extensions would harm the character and visual amenity of the surrounding area. We argued that there was no clear justification for this condition, therefore failing the test of necessity and reasonableness. The Planning Inspector agreed with our argument and reinstated the rights. Our client is now able to build the detached garage in the grounds of their home.
