Our client had previously submitted an application with the help of a draftsman but the application had to be withdrawn with the planners advising that the scheme was unacceptable. RCC were instructed to review the scheme and resubmit with a more robust justification for the works. Even then the council again questioned the need for the works and further negotiations were need. The permission has now been granted for the scheme as submitted with the council (eventually) accepting the strong case RCC had put forward. This again shows the added value that a planning consultant can bring to a wide variety of proposals.
