Ifor Williams Ltd are a returning client of ours who once again instructed us as their Planning Agents. They wanted to continue work towards their flourishing building set at Ty’n Llidiart Industrial Estate, Corwen. This latest submission included the proposal of the installation of 3 no. internally illuminated signs on the exterior of two of their buildings. The intention of these signs would be to alert their customers and make it easier for visitors to see where the company's premises are located. Owen Devenport took on the proposal and prepared a report which supported the need for these signs. The proposal was happily received and we were glad to obtain the necessary consents.
Permission has been granted for the erection of an executive house at Betws y Coed following on from pre-application advice given by the Snowdonia National Park. The plot is set within an exclusive development on the edge of the village consisting of 5 plots overall, 3 of which have already been developed. Some of the Park's advice was challenged and in approving the development they clearly acceded to our own suggestions. This detached quality property was designed by Ty Architecture cyf with input from the client throughout. Our client was genuinely delighted at receiving the approval having previously been refused the design he had originally sought for the plot.
Our client owned of a piece of land situated at Newborough, Anglesey. He approached us with the intention of erecting three new residential dwellings on the land which was in fact the garden area of a property he owned in the village. As the dwellings proposed were to be set adjacent to other properties the design was a crucial element of the application. BR Architecture were instructed and after much discussion with the Local Planning Authority and final amendments to the submission we were keen to receive the sought for permission. It finally arrived and the client was delighted to receive his permission and is now set to start work on site.
Our client had purchased a building used formerly as offices on the High Street in Llangefni. His intentions were to convert the building into a shop on the ground floor along with 3 flats above. Owen Devenport prepared a report which reinforced the proposal and submitted an application to the Local Planning Authority. The application was dealt with in a timely manner and was quickly approved. Our client was happy with the results and can now start work implementing his permission, with the shop quickly let showing a demand for retail floor space in Llangefni Town Centre.
We were approached by our client who was the owner of a static caravan at Mold in Flintshire. This caravan had a long history of having been used as a dwelling without permission. Our client had collected a profusion of evidence which solidified this use and therefore he intended to apply for a Lawful Use Certificate in order to continue with its use lawfully. Owen Devenport were duly instructed and prepared a report which emphasised this evidence and were asked to submit the application to the Local Planning Authority. We were finally pleased to let our client know that their submission had been approved as Lawful and they may now continue with the use undisturbed.
