Smart Planning has achieved another outline planning permission for the redevelopment of a rural site within the settlement boundary of Great Totham, Essex.

This application, approved by Maldon District Council, involved the demolition of the existing summer house and the erection of two detached chalet bungalows, the conversion of the existing outbuilding into a residential dwelling and the partial demolition of the main dwellinghouse to create two semi-detached dwellings with a detached double garage. This would form a total of five dwellings on the site.

Despite the Parish Council recommending refusal, the Case Officer for this application explained that the proposed development, by reason of its scale and layout would not harm the appearance or character of the locality and due to its relationship with the adjoining properties, the proposed development is not considered to result in any undue harm by way of overlooking or loss of amenity. In addition, the proposed development would not have a detrimental impact on the provision of amenity space and car parking provision.

This application considered the principle of the development, its access and layout. All outstanding matters such as scale, appearance and landscape will form a subsequent reserved matters application.

This provides yet another example of how Smart Planning is delivering success and positive results for their clients and meeting development aspirations.
