Planning permission was obtained some years ago for the replacement of an existing house in the Green Belt for a larger property. We advised the landowner regarding a series of amendments to that permission which obtained a larger house, including a basement and sunken patio area. This can be a difficult area of planning policy due to previous case law on what is allowed in Green Belt replacement schemes: court cases that we have been involved in over many years. Our advice led to planning permission for the scheme in this new case being granted under delegated powers.
