Variation of Planning Permission

Variation of Condition Application – Changes to approved plans

We successfully applied to vary the condition imposed on a previously approved application in the Christchurch Road Conservation Area. On review of the original application, our client deemed the side dormers would be far too small to enable the family to gain adequate space in the loft and therefore wished to change the approved plans to allow for one larger dormer to both side elevations and raise the height of the existing chimneys. We argued that the revised dormer would not appear unduly dominant in scale on the roof slope and would not be detrimental to the conservation area.

Variation of Condition – Reinstate Permitted Development Rights

A client wished to vary a condition of an earlier permission that removed permitted development rights for this dwelling on a 10 acre plot in the Green Belt . The new owners were querying the plot division when the previous owners sub-divided the dwelling into three separate units. The Local Planning Authority were unhappy with the treatment of the curtilage, not wanting the entire 10 acres to be considered as part of the residential plot for PD purposes.

Following extensive negotiations between the Planning Officer and the client, and many site plans we were able to achieve a satisfactory outcome on the curtilage for each plot and were successful in having permitted development rights reinstated.
