Castles Homes purchased this property speculatively with a view to increasing the value of the plot. They instructed LP Planning to prepare and submit a planning application for conversion of the existing dwelling to three flats. This application was originally resisted by the planners at pre-application stage. However after careful negotiation and some changes to the design LP Planning managed to obtain planning permission for a revised scheme.
The main issues which we addressed related to design, internal layout, impact on amenity, car parking and refuse. The planning permission enabled the client to maximise the potential of the site in a short time.
