SUFFOLK PREAPP SUCCESSFUL

In Blog by Pete Tonks / December 13, 2013 / 0 Comments

Had a great response in today from St Edmunsbury council in Suffolk for a barn style replacement dwelling project which sits on a lovely village green.

When we did the preapp, i advised my clients to get proper surveys done on the existing dwelling so we can produce architectural comparison drawings of old versus new but also things like bats, trees, on the ground ecology etc, all of which paid off as the preapp response acknowledges the level of detail we had put in and therefore gives the whole project credibility from day one.

In overall summary, the preapp response indicates the councils support in principle which means we can proceed to the next phase which is the full planning application.

Nice little result for a Friday!
