Many applicants submit planning applications which seek a grant of permission for multiple developments as part of a single planning application, for example an applicant may seek permission for a ‘single storey extension and two storey side extension’.
We find that these types of application are often refused, in full, by the Local Planning Authority, even though the reasons for refusal are specific to a single element of the development proposed.
Depending on your reasons for refusal, we may advise that you appeal the Local Planning Authority’s Decision to the Planning Inspectorate.
In order to optimise the prospects of success for our clients we invite the inspector to determine the Appeal as if permission was being sought for two separate applications, which often results in part allowed – part dismissed appeals.
We have recently assisted a client with their appeal, which sought a retrospective grant of planning permission, for the retention of a detached garage and boundary fencing at their residential property.
At Appeal we invited the Inspector to consider the retention of the garage and the retention of the boundary fencing as separate matters which needed independent consideration and determination. We were ultimately successful in gaining our client a grant of planning permission for the retention of the garage and advised her in relation to potential enforcement implications as a result of the retention of the fencing.
