A Cheshire firm of Architects wanted to instruct a local company of Town Planners with experience of dealing with Gwynedd Council. Owen Devenport were recommended and were duly instructed. The scheme was to erect a new single dwelling on a plot in Llanbedrog. This was unusual in that it was on an estate of properties built during the 1970's and would be the first new development on this estate. In advising the Architects, and in accordance with the clients' ambitions, plans were drawn of a contemporary low level single storey dwelling, which would also potentially affect the setting of a Listed Building, sited to the rear of the proposed plot.
The Planning Support Statement prepared by Owen Devenport dealt with all the issues and was used by the Architects who submitted the application on behalf of their client. There followed some discussions on design, and the plans were duly amended. The client had also submitted, through his Architects, an application to extend the adjoining dwelling, which he also owned. As a consequence two applications were before the officers and following discussions on matters of design, the principle of both developments was agreed and subsequently both applications were approved. The delighted client has permission for a single plot in a much sought after established development in Llanbedrog, being only a stroll away from the beach.
