A family were hoping to extend their home to provide additional bedrooms and living space, but the Council refused permission twice for their plans. We were called in to advise on a possible appeal. Through a sequence of further applications and eventual appeal, we could put a case that the works to the house would be acceptable and not harmful to the character of the property or wider area. The appeal was allowed, and our clients have secured the space they need.
CIient: private householder
Our clients own a commercial building that was built as part of a mixed use development with a planning condition restricting the occupancy to very limited community and healthcare uses. This was restricting the potential letting of the building. We prepared a case to widen the Use Classes that could occupy the premises, in order to improve the chances for finding a new commercial occupier. The application was approved under delegated powers.
Client: private pension fund
