On behalf of our client, Smart Planning has successfully discharged six conditions concerning a proposal to develop three new dwellings in Chelmsford, Essex.

Four of the conditions related to the original outline planning permission, with details submitted regarding proposed Ecological Enhancements, Site Levels, an Arboricultural Method Statement and a Construction Phasing Plan.

The two remaining conditions were in relation to the reserved matters, concerning details of Boundary Treatments and Materials respectively.

The outline application was originally refused planning permission by Chelmsford City Council, but later approved on appeal through the Planning Inspectorate. The Inspector for the appeal case raised no concerns in regards to highway safety, the impacts on the character and appearance of the area, nor affects on the nearby Listed Building. The proposal also protected an existing mature Oak Tree on site to the benefit of the wider streetscene. The tree benefits from a Tree Preservation Order in any case.

Consequently, the appeal was allowed, paving the way for further success with the reserved matters and conditions discharge applications.
