East Dorset District Council: Darryl Howells has secured full planning permission for the demolition of two bungalows in St Ives, near Ringwood and the erection of a detached bungalow and two detached chalet bungalows. The client instructed Scott Worsfold Associates to prepare the plans, but asked Darryl to prepare his usual comprehensive planning statement, submit the application and negotiate to secure its successful outcome.

The client originally had a thee chalet bungalow scheme refused and subsequently dismissed on appeal, prior to approaching Pure Town Planning for advice and guidance. Darryl assessed the Inspector’s reasons for dismissing the appeal and advised the applicant how to address the reasons and improve the scheme.

Following the amendments in respect of design and spacing between the dwellings; and landscaping of the site at the frontage, the revised application was submitted and subsequently approved under the planning officer’s delegated powers without delay or significant alteration to the drawings.

If you have received a refusal or been dismissed at appeal, please contact Pure Town Planning to give you an impartial assessment and pro-active advice how to convert the scheme into an approval…
