Lower Green Farm


RCC has been involved in numerous planning applications for replacement dwellings. With replacement dwellings planners are mainly considering the increase in size of the dwelling, its design, impact on the landscape and character of the area. In this instance our client had bought the bungalow shown in the photographs which also came with surrounding paddocks. The proposal was for a replacement two storey dwelling but with a contemporary design.

The initial design proposed by the client and their architect was always going to be a difficult scheme to gain support from locals and planners which turned out to be the case. RCC therefore suggested an alternative design route which the architect and client agreed with. The result was the scheme illustrated by the drawing extract and 3D images created.

The subsequent planning application was submitted by RCC and approved under delegated powers with no local objection and within the normal timescales. Ultimately our clients have achieved the floor space they required along with an attractive and contemporary designed house.

Following a long neighbourly dispute about the use of our garden outbuilding we engaged Richard to apply for formal permission to use the building as a holiday let. Richard and his assistant Rachel drew up a detailed planning statement and followed through the application process and resulting queries in a thoroughly balanced and professional manner. The outcome was positive and I have already recommended RCC to others.

We retained the services of RCC Town Planning Consultancy to assist us in preparing and submitting a retrospective planning application to change the windows and a couple of other issues in a building that although not listed, apparently fell in the curtilage of neighbouring listed buildings.

The team are highly experienced and produce a professional, complete planning statement leaving absolutely nothing to be challenged. We dealt primarily with Vicky who kept on top of any comments posted, supplying responses where necessary and keeping us informed at every step. 

We had a positive outcome on our first application and  would definitely use Richard and his excellent team again. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone requiring planning assistance.

Siggi Marchetti and David Taylor, Hampshire

We are very grateful for your efficient and very professional service to steer our planning application to a successful outcome. Considering that it was far from a straightforward case it proceeded to a satisfactory conclusion without any holdups. 

This was entirely due to your comprehensive build of the case and the detail and foresight in covering all angles. Needless to say we would recommend RCC Town Planning to anyone without any hesitation.
