Planning Appeal

Planning appeal for a new dwellinghouse in Walthamstow

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.

Planning appeal – Old Kent Road, Southwark

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.

Objection Letter

I have drafted an objection letter against a development refused by Islington Council which had been appealed. The proposal is a bulky and unneighbourly 2 storey rear extension on a terraced house, a grade II listed building in a Conservation Area.

The Appeal has subsequently been dismissed.

Success – Appeal won against a refused Certificate of Lawfulness

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea refused a Certificate of Lawfulness to establish the lawful use of a property as a dwellinghouse. The Council are of the opinion that the property at ground floor was a Clinic (use class D1) but the property was sold to the current owner as a dwellinghouse. I have written the appeal statement and submitted the appeal for the owners. At the Hearing in December, I successfully argued and proved that the property had been in use mainly as a dwellinghouse for more than 4 years and the Inspector granted the Lawful Development Certificate so the owner’s property is now lawful.
