Our client wished to erect a small detached bungalow on a brownfield site in his ownership. As the appointed planning consultants we put together an application to submit to the Local Planning Authority to demonstrate that the development was in line with all the relevant planning policies. However it was several months later before the LPA agreed with our contention and even insisted upon an application for Lawful Use be submitted (for the existing use). When this was approved the LPA were then and only then, disposed to approve the original application. A frustrated but satisfied client now has the planning permission he required.
