Householder planning application granted in Conservation Area

Viable Placemaking are thrilled to have supported a homeowner with their householder planning application, which was granted earlier this week by Camden Council.

The planning application was for a garden room and hardstanding at a property within the Dartmouth Park Conservation Area. A Conservation Area is a designated heritage asset, which is defined in national planning policy as an “irreplaceable resource, and should be conserved in a manner appropriate to their significance”.

Additionally, the development had already commenced at the time Viable Placemaking became involved, due to some initial confusion around permitted development between the homeowner and the contractor. This meant the development risked enforcement action from the Council.

Working together with an architect who provided the plans, Viable Placemaking prepared a Planning, Design and Access Statement and a Heritage Statement to submit to the Council.

Viable Placemaking worked proactively with the Council who granted full planing permission for the works earlier this week.

This is a great result for the homeowner who is now able to proceed with their development.

If you are a homeowner or developer who would like to learn more about how Viable Placemaking can support with your planning application, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
