We were instructed to assist in the preparation and submission of a revised application following withdrawal of an earlier application after considerable opposition had arisen to plans to increase the height of the clients property in the towns conservation area. Following consideration of these local objections, and in spite of the level of opposition, we advised the client that the proposal should acceptable and that subject to some subtle amendments it should be re-submitted to the Council.

The application was duly re-submitted and we assisted in negotiations between the Councils Conservation and Planning Departments and the clients architects, which resulted in the scheme being approved.
