This site had a long history of trying to gain permission for the change of use of the office building (last used in 2000) into residential. Due to a change in the parking restrictions there was no longer an objection on parking grounds. I sought a legal opinion from a barrister from 39 Essex Chambers to support the application. and consent was granted for 2 applications – one for change of use into 2 flats and one for change of use into 1 house.
I assisted an architect by drafting a covering letter to support a planning application for the demolition of an existing garage and erection of a single-storey (plus basement and attic accommodation) 3-bedroom detached house with associated cycle and refuse storage. I provided full justification as to why the application should be approved. Full planning permission granted within 8 weeks.
I was contacted by the owner of a flat who moved into her property in 2012 but at the time the developer had not discharged any of the conditions attached to the original permission dating from 2011. I applied to remove a number of the conditions as they were no longer applicable and to provide details for the materials, refuse, cycle parking and car club membership. All details approved.
Planning permission granted within 8 weeks for a new house to replace a 1960s outdated dwelling with no financial contribution towards affordable housing. I advised and assisted the architect on what supporting documents were required and liaised with the case officer to gain permission within 8 weeks.
I drafted the planning statement, advised the client and submitted a planning application for a new 2 bedroom dwelling in Southfields. Granted planning permission within 8 weeks.
