Preferred Partner Involvement
This project followed a back land development for the erection of a new detached dwelling in the Urban Area and an Area of Landscape Importance in Egham. Following the design brief of the client, a unique design was produced. This included a gothic style dwelling with brick quoins at the borders along with a brick plinth. The main material of the dwelling will be stone to complement the brick details. The proposal was amended during the application process following feedback from the case officer.
Acting as Planning Agents for the application WS Planning & Architecture liaised with the applicant, Preferred Partners and external consultants to pull together the submission as well as supporting the application with a Planning, Design and Access Statement. Due to the constraints of the site, it was necessary for the Council to determine the application at Committee level. The application was granted at Committee, in line with positive Officer recommendation.
This application demonstrates the need to front load applications with as much detail as possible to ensure the proposal can be understood clearly by all interested parties and provide the confidence needed for decision makers to support proposals for new development.
