In this episode, Ruth talks about moving from her background in architecture to planning. Top tips for anyone wanting to gain planning permission and why she loves timber frame so much. “I got into planning to defend the genuinely good.”
Our Director, Matthew Green, is going to be speaking on “Maximising Your Land Use” at the Holiday Park & Resort Innovation show on the 9th in Theatre Hall 10.
I will be setting out how Green Planning Studio can help landowners and potential landowners identify how they can maximise the planning opportunities on their sites. This can include exploiting the conditions or lack of conditions on an existing planning permission and how alternative uses can be found for a site. We can identify existing uses and show how a certificate of lawfulness can open up the potential of sites. This can benefit tourism uses such as glamping, caravans and even tree houses as well as other rural activities from agriculture to rural crafts. We are at the forefront of emerging case law which gives our clients exceptional opportunities not open to them from conventional planning strategies.
Join us in the Grand Build Section at stand B472. We will be available to assist with your enquiries. Ruth and Ian have previously been planning and architectural experts at both the Home Building and Renovating Show and at Grand Designs LIVE in London and in Birmingham.
Director Michael Rudd has successfully concluded a long-running case to secure permanent consent for Mr Wenman.
The case of Mr Wenman and Waverley Borough Council has finally drawn to a conclusion, with Inspector Philip Major allowing the appeal and granting a permanent planning permission. The appeal was made under section 78 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 against a refusal to grant planning permission. Mr Wenman’s had previously had his appeal dismissed, but that was overturned by the High Court.
