Our client had previously submitted an application with the help of a draftsman but the application had to be withdrawn with the planners advising that the scheme was unacceptable.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.

The applicants had tried to obtain planning permission for a second agricultural workers dwelling at their West Overton farm for a family member to live in. The dwelling was to replace a mobile home that had occupied the site for many years however the Council were now threatening enforcement action.
All applications for agricultural workers dwellings are complicated. They need to be presented to the local planning authority with a strongly set out case in the supporting statements. This proposal was for a third dwelling at this dairy farm and as such the challenges were even greater.
