Springfield Road, Rowde


RCC first dealt with this site when we acted on behalf of the previous owner (Aster Housing Association) attaining outline planning permission for two houses and replacement car parking. The site consisted of a row of garages and a wider hard surfaced area used for car parking, as seen in the photographs.

Following the approval of that application the site was sold at auction. RCC were then approached by the purchaser who wanted us to prepare and submit the reserved matters application. In doing so we prepared a proposal that reduced the replacement parking provision to provide a better setting for the proposed dwellings. In order to support the new proposal we undertook a car parking survey to demonstrate the lack of need for the amount of replacement car parking previously required by the council. We were successful and the application approved. Extracts from the drawings submitted are attached.

Francine Falco, Rowde

Thank you so much for dealing with my planning application and I just want to say what a fantastic job you have done.  Quick and efficient and I would highly recommend RCC. 

Mr Askins, Wiltshire

Following work to the perimeter of our Grade II listed property we were informed by Wiltshire Council that we needed planning permission. We applied for retrospective planning permission and engaged RCC to advise us and take the process forward. Thanks to their professionalism, knowledge, expertise and persistence, having been initially objected to, RCC secured permission. We are in no doubt that without RCC we could not have secure a successful outcome.

Mr & Mrs Sealy,Melksham

Having bought the land and used it as an extension of our garden for well over 10 years without any concerns from neighbours or the council, we were quite shocked and upset to be facing a complaint earlier this year. With the welfare of our animals tied up in the success of the applications, the period was very stressful and emotional. Richard and Vicky led us through the process with great care and attention to detail and produced a very high quality set of applications based on sound arguments which was borne out in them being approved at first submission without any concerns raised by the planning officer.
