DLP Planning are pleased to have secured planning permission on appeal for alterations and extensions to a building in a Conservation Area that will provide five residential dwellings in the London Borough of Barnet.
We were instructed during the course of the application as our client had been informed by the Council’s Planning Officers that they had concerns with the development, some of which had already been completed. We worked with the Council’s Planning Officers to resolve these issues through a series of amendments, which enabled them to recommend to the Planning Committee that permission be granted.
Frustratingly, this recommendation was overturned at the Committee meeting. DLP Planning submitted an appeal on behalf of our client which included a detailed analysis of the lack of impact of the alterations and extensions on the Conservation Area. This argument was supported by the Planning Inspector who upheld the appeal and has allowed the development to proceed. This will breathe new life into the building as well as creating five residential dwellings which are much needed in the area
