A project small in scale, but detailed in complexity. Planning permission had been granted for a large outbuilding to the rear of a substantial house in the Holland Park area of Kensington. Alterations were made during building to improve construction and incorporate sustainability measures, but the resulting building was differen to that approved. Enforcement action followed. The case at appeal concerned not only the differences between the approved and the as-built scheme, but analysis of what controls the Council actually had on the building, as well as the impact on the conservation area and neighbours. The appeal was allowed and the outbuilding can remain.
