This client approached us after the council had refused similar applications for previous two-storey side extensions. Rather than appealing the previous refusals, we recommended changes to the design and submitted a new application on their behalf. The new application was accompanied by a persuasive Planning Statement. We worked with the council case officer to iron out any of their concerns and were delighted when the application was approved. It is important to ensure you have a well designed proposal and a Supporting Statement that makes your case as strongly as possible!
