A great appeal success for our clients in Monmouth against recently against the Forest of dean Council. The Council made a rash decision on enforcement cases that simply did not have grounds for a case. Great to win but sadly, time is lost and costs our clients have had to endure delays in completing their project


Platinum Planning are delighted to announce Full Planning Permission has been secured for a site in Frampton Cotterell for 2no detached dwellings on a site considered as backland development.

The application was refused on grounds of loss of privacy and impact upon living conditions upon the occupants at 51 and 53 Church Road. There was reference to loss of privacy, noise, disturbance, odours, fumes, vibrations and impact upon the the character and appearance of the area.

The inspector noted and made reference to a similar arrangement in situ at the adjoining property towards Alexandra Road which features a comparable driveway. To protect the existing dwellings in terms of privacy, a condition was imposed to dwelling 1 to install glazing on the South elevation. With regards to character due to the elevated position of the host dwellings, the new dwellings will be partially screened from view and not considered to affect the character of the area. The design of the new access was also referred to in the Planning Officers report however a similar arrangement was already constructed and in use at the adjacent site and was deemed by the inspector acceptable.
