Large extension in green belt
Project BriefOur client owned a large detached bungalow on Green Belt that was also an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. They wished to add an extension of 260 metres squared, which would increase the overall size by 68%. The council’s guideline maximum threshold for extensions was 50%; however, Get Planning and Architecture was confident that with their expertise they could put forward a successful planning application so that their client could get the large extension that they wanted.
Project OutcomeAfter clarifying our client’s exact requirements, we conducted a thorough site visit. The next step was an expert review of the relevant planning policies to find policies which supported the application and consider how to handle those that the council may try to use against it. We then prepared high quality CAD Planning Drawings of the property ‘as existing’. Our planning and architectural teams collaborated to share their expertise and to come up with a design proposal that would maximise the client’s chances of success.
We presented the design proposal to Client for feedback and any modifications they wished to make. After this, our RIBA chartered architect monitored the design work and we finalised the CAD Planning Drawings of the proposals. We submitted the application online and kept our client up to date with its progress. Due to the application’s high quality and the expert research that went into it, planning permission was given for the development at its full proposed size.
Our client was delighted with the result.
