Borough of Poole: Darryl Howells has secured full planning permission for the demolition of two existing 10-bedroom HMOs and the erection of a 3-storey block of ten. self-contained flats with associated parking and vehicular access.  The plans were drawn by Trinity Architecture but prior to the application’s submission, Darryl used his extensive experience as a former LPA officer to identify potential problems and suggest alterations. Pure Town Planning were then instructed to submit this application and manage it through the process. To support the planning application submission, Darryl wrote the Design & Access Statement that justified the proposed development in policy terms and submitted the application.

The planning application was initially welcomed and supported by the Borough of Poole, however towards the end of the application’s consideration, concern was raised regarding the outlook of a particular flat within the roof space. James Frampton of Trinity Architecture and Darryl discussed potential solutions finalising on a particular layout.  The plans were amended and Darryl sent the plans to the Council with a follow-up justification. The subsequent changes and the resultant scheme were approved by the Council’s Team Manager using his delegated powers.
