Chinnor Hill, Oxfordshire
In this case the Client instructed us to seek a Planning Permission for a property having a floor area far in excess of that which existed.
The only way of achieving this on a site which stood in the middle of The Great Bledlow Wood and within the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty was to first reinstate old permissions for extension which were never implemented by the former owner and from their to exploit the Permitted Development Rights that existed at that time. Once we had achieved this as a first phase, this created a platform to negotiate a replacement dwelling of a size that met with Client expectations.
The new dwelling is under construction.
