City Planning successfully obtained permission for the redevelopment of an existing mews house in Kensington to create a family home. City Planning first obtained planning permission at appeal against RB Kensington and Chelsea's decision to refuse permission to convert the existing garage to residential accommodation. City Planning then obtained planning permission to extend and alter the rear roofslope, significantly improving the standard of the accommodation the dwelling provided. Finally, City Planning obtained planning permission for the construction of a single storey basement under the house.
Using a five-stage, seven-month strategy, City Planning succesfully gained permission for the conversion of a former office building into 10 highly desirable flats near Clapham Junction station. The first stage sought permission for the reinstatement of an external stair to improve circulation through the office building. Then prior approval was obtained for the conversion of the offices to 9 studio flats. Stages three and four sought permission to extend the property to increase the size of units at lower ground and ground floor levels, and to demolish structures in the rear to provide private gardens for those units on the lower ground floor. The final stage obtained planning permission for the erection of a mansard roof to provide an additional one-bedroom flat. All permissions were received by September 2017.
