Planning Direct has today received notification from the Planning Inspectorate of yet another Appeal Win.
Our client, Mr Allen approached us wanting to appeal a Planning Decision. He sought to erect a front extension to the garage attached to his home. Rather frustratingly his Planning Application had been turned down by Dartford Borough Council. Fundamentally the Council had claimed his small extension would be intrusive and detrimental to both the character of his property and the surrounding area. Fortunately for Mr Allen, Nikki of Planning Direct successfully argued that this was not the case.
Planning Direct submitted an appeal which demonstrated that this proposal was in fact in line with both National and Local Planning Policy. The appeal statement referred to Dartford’s own Development Policy Plan, making it impossible for the Inspector not to approve the application and allow the appeal. Mr Allen said “thanks for your expertise in correcting the Council’s wrongful decision”.
If you have had a Planning Application turned down by your local Council, don’t despair. You are not alone; this is by no means un-common.
