Planning Approval Granted for 1100sqft Contemporary Extension in Greenbelt

Earlier this year Waverley Borough Council refused planning permission for  the contemporary remodelling of a house in Greenbelt outside Farnham, Surrey because of the 24sqm extension on the rear of the existing 516sqm house was “too large”.

However, this week planning permission was approved for our revised scheme which not only included all of the remodelling works under the original application but also included a rear extension of over 100sqm, some four times larger than that originally refused…

The difference? The additional 102sqm was secured using Permitted Development Rights making the planning application simpler and just about the change from a 1960’s stone clad sprawling bungalow created over 40 years of ad hoc extensions in to a single unified architectural composition
