The approved apartments all have large external terraces with views over the neighbouring park land, in the London Borough of Bexley.
Following the refusal of an earlier scheme, Urban and Rural worked to pick apart the reasons for refusal, before re-submitting a full detailed planning application.
The new detailed application was submitted on this complex site; following a very contextual architectural response being developed. Through the production of a detailed Design and Access Statement, we set out a clear compliance with Bexley’s Design Guild, as well as the London Plan, and a strong case was put forward for consideration.
The case officer processing the application confirmed the scheme would now be compliant and acceptable, however, the Tree Officer objected due to a concern over an existing tree in the neighbouring park.
Plainview Planning submitted an appeal to the Secretary of State, with the detailed Arboricultural report confirming there would not be a detrimental impact on the existing trees.
The appeal was successful and our client has now been Granted Full Planning Consent.
