The client and a number of fellow local residents instructed Kate Jardine to assist them in formulating an argument against the progression of a series of block built high end apartments in a relatively quiet area on the edge of a rural town. The proposed site was on the edge of a conservation area and already suffering with traffic congestion coming into the town, as well as the potential for significant overlooking and overbearing for the existing residents as a result of the proposed development.
Kate advised on the validity of an application made by the developer for prior approval for demolition of the property on site. Robust representations against the proposal were submitted to the Local Planning Authority on behalf of the residents.
Prior approval was subsequently denied, with four different reasons cited. The demolition of the property has been successfully placed on hold whilst a full planning application is considered.
