Planning permission and listed building consent have been granted at appeal for a side extension to a house. The property also lies in a conservation area, in the LB Richmond.
The Council had objected to the size, design and position of the side extension, ruling out any extension 'in principle'. We demonstrated through careful appraisal of the planning policies how the scheme was actually supported by planning policies, and the Inspector agreed. Our research also showed how the development would fit into the pattern of buildings in the area. The Inspector concurred there would be no harm to the listed building, or to the Conservation Area, or to neighbours.
