Windsor and Maidenhead - Projects completed
Success - Appeal Allowed against refusal for expansion of dental practice in Sunninghill
We submitted a planning application for the change of use of a small shop unit into a dentist to expand a successful business in the heart of Sunninghill. The Council refused it due to potential harm to the vitality and viability of the shopping centre. In March 2018, we submitted an appeal this was allowed in January 2019. The Inspector agreed with our argument that the new dentist would not harm the vitality of the shopping centre.
Appeal allowed for privacy screen to rear roof terrace to house in Horton
I submitted two appeals at this property within the Green Belt. The first was allowed for a privacy screen to the rear of the property at first floor level. The second appeal against a new high front wall was dismissed due to the impact on the openness of the Green Belt.
Objection letter written against the change of use/conversion and extension of existing mixed use
office/residential building to provide 9 self contained flats in Sunninghill
I drafted a strongly worded letter against this large and unneighbourly scheme for the residents of the neighbouring property. The Council duly refused the application.
Appeal allowed for he erection of two storey side extensions and part single part two storey rear extensions and installation of front gate to house in Maidenhead
We submitted an application for this scheme which was refused but following our appeal statement, the application was approved. The Inspector concluded "I conclude that the effect of the proposed extensions on the character and appearance of the existing dwelling and its surroundings would not be harmful – although noticeably larger The Chase will remain a handsome building. There would therefore be no conflict with Policies DG1 & H14 of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Local Plan 2003"
Submission of planning application for the erection of 2 industrial units in Datchet
We advised and drafted the planning statement to justify the erection of 2 new industrial units within an existing business park in Datchet. Issues included its relationship to neighbours and flood issues. The new units will significantly improve the area visually while providing new premises for new businesses and aid the local economy.
Submission of an appeal against an Enforcement Notice
An Enforcement Notice was served on the owners on a remote part of Datchet for the use as a Green Waste depot. The Council issued the notice as they were concerned about the impact of the process of mulching and chipping trees upon the openness of the Green Belt, flooding issues, the impact on neighbours and on the local economy. The appeal has been submitted on grounds a, f and g – that planning permission should be granted for the use, that planning conditions could overcome any perceived harm and that 6 months is not long enough to comply with the Notice due to the drying time required for the trees to save them from being dumped in land fill.
Objection letter for 3 dwellings in Ascot
Cameron Jones Planning has now written three objection letters against the development of a plot of land in Burleigh Road in Ascot – the first two applications were refused and the third is pending. Objections raised were the harm the development would have upon the character of the area, the harmful impact on neighbouring residents contrary to the Ascot, Sunninghill and Sunningdale Neighbourhood Plan.
Pre-application submission for a house extension in the Green Belt - Buckhurst Road, Cheapside
We were successful in gaining a positive pre-application response for a large extension to a house in the Green Belt in Cheapside. The Council had previously approved extensions to the neighbouring properties but had made an error in their calculations for the overall size of the extensions and therefore agreed that a larger extension could be permitted at the dwellinghouse. A new access into the property from Cheapside Road was also agreed as access onto Buckhurst Road is so dangerous.
