There is a good deal of activity in the residential market at present and we are involved in a number of proposals of varying sizes.

  • We have recently achieved planning permission for a development of 60 houses at Thaxted in Essex, outside the village development boundary. The site is now included in the council's draft Local Plan.
  • We secured planning permission for 46 houses at Takeley in Essex.
  • We achieved planning permission for 82 houses and public open space at Stone Cross, Polegate, within the council's Strategic Development Area
  • An application for 103 houses in Crowborough, recently refused, is the subject of discussion at the Local Plan Examination and appeal will be heard at public inquiry later in the year
  • We have achieved a series of favourable decisions in respect of applications for planning permission, listed building consent and advertisement consent on a substantial office building in the London Borough of Southwark
  • We have achieved Lawful Development Certificates in Warwickshire on the basis of the issue of whether intensification leads to a change of use, in two local authority areas. We are advising other clients of the implications of these decisions.
  • We have recently achieved planning permission for extensions to an established hotel in the Berkshire green belt.
  • We have submitted an application for the extension of a Grade 1 listed hotel and restaurant premises in Sussex.
  • We have successfully negotiated Prior Approval consents on two office buildings for change of use to residential, in West Sussex and Essex
