We have recently achieved full planning permission for a new detached house on a greenfield site within the Green Belt. Tight restrictions exist for any new buildings in the Green Belt, and securing a new house on an undeveloped site is always difficult. We demonstrated that the proposal would accord with all aspects of Green Belt policy, and other relevant matters, and the application was approved under delegated powers.

We have obtained planning permission for a 'natural' swimming pool in the grounds of a house in Oxfordshire. These pools make use of natural features and planting to appear as a pond, but in fact are a full swimming pool for the house. Our client's property is in a conservation area and within the countryside, so this was a suitable solution for the property, but still needed to be argued why planning permission should be granted.
