Very special circumstances for house extension in the Green Belt

Clients came to Cameron Jones Planning following refusal of a previous applications for extensions to the front and roof of this dwelling overlooking the River Thames, within the Green Belt. The proposal was deemed to be disproportionate and would impact on the openness of the Green Belt. We submitted a new application with revised floor area calculations that included the loft space and adjunct outbuilding as part of the original dwelling size. Although the proposed scheme was still over the allowable Green Belt size increase, as dictated by Runnymede Borough Council’s planning policy, it would be smaller in footprint than the existing dwelling. We argued that the scheme would be less harmful to the Green Belt than the current situation. The Planning Officer accepted this argument and allowed the application under very special circumstances.

Approval for dormer roof extension in Putney Conservation Area

Cameron Jones Planning worked on two planning applications to extend the roof space at this three-storey mid terrace dwelling in the Charlwood Conservation Area. The initial application for a hip-to-gable roof extension (2023/2812) was refused at appeal, deemed an incongruous addition that would harm the conservation area. We were successful with the second application (2023/2812) which proposed the replacement of the side dormer and enlargement of an existing rear dormer. The Planning Officer considered the proposal to preserve the special character of the conservation area.

Approval for two flats to single dwelling in Putney

This three-storey dwelling, within the Putney Embankment Conservation Area, was subdivided into two flats in the 1960s, one three bedroom and the other one bedroom. Cameron Jones Planning prepared the Heritage and Planning Statement which argued that the de-conversion would not result in the loss of a family unit (in line with Wands worth Council’s policy) but create a more usable family unit. Neither the three bedroom nor one bedroom units could be deemed as family-sized. The Planning Officer agreed with our case and allowed the application.
