Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Important Information




RCC were approached by the applicants who had tried to attain planning permission for residential development within their garden since 1984. During that time they were unsuccessful with seven planning applications of which three had been dismissed on appeal. Those unsuccessful applications included single storey dwellings.


The site prior to development

Achieving planning permission was therefore going to be extremely challenging but RCC prepared a detailed planning statement to accompany the new outline application for a single storey dwelling using the most recent changes in Government planning policy to support the proposal. Having regard to all the issues raised as part of the planning application, together with the lack of objections from neighbours or the Parish Council, the planning officers finally accepted that a dwelling on this site would be acceptable and planning permission was granted under delegated powers.

Having now established the principle of a dwelling on the site RCC subsequently prepared and submitted a full planning application for a dwelling with rooms in the roof space. That application was successful and approved. The house is now built, as seen in the attached photograph.

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.

Philippa Gunthorp & Andy Few, Devizes

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.
