An architect and client had undertaken extensive works to a property in London in the belief that they constituted permitted development. A neighbour and the local planning authority disagreed and threatened enforcement action, which would have been very costly and disruptive. We were asked to review the case and concluded that there should not be any action taken.
We made strong submissions to the Council to explain why action should not be taken, backed up by firm legal opinion. Action was not taken and the work could remain.
