Owen Devenport were asked to prepare a resubmission for planning permission obtained by us several years ago. This was about to expire and so it was imperative that the time limits were met. The original approval granted our clients permission to erect 35 residential apartments for people over the age of 55 and as there was no material change in planning policy it should have been a straightforward application. However were aware of the substantial objections to the original application thus ensuring submission before expiry was critical. We submitted the necessary documents along with updated reports in order to justify the renewal. The Local Planning Authority agreed with our interpretation of policy in this context and permitted another five years for the development to be implemented. Our relieved clients were needless to say delighted with the outcome.
