NEW HOUSE APPROVED IN GARDEN OF FAMILY HOME

DAP are proud to have recently secured planning permission for a new house in what was formerly a rear garden of a family home. The existing site, which had been subdivided previously, consisted of a martial arts training centre building or ‘dojo’ in a poor state of repair.

After first seeking pre-application advice from Brent Council, the team at DAP produced a scheme that took on board the points raised by the planners and submitted initially for a 3-bedroom house, which was, after some negotiation, reduced to a 2-bedroom house. Whilst the application was recommended for approval with an ‘excellent’ landscaping scheme, the fate of the case was decided by Brent Council’s Planning Committee in their December meeting and after some discussion including objections, a decision to approve the family home was made with 6 members voting in favour and 1 against.
Harman Sond, senior planner at DAP and project lead, stated that this was a positive result and a ‘sound’ planning decision by the local authority which demonstrated that there was still faith in the planning system for supporting schemes with good architectural integrity and environmental credentials that do not have any more of an impact than the existing situation. Sond, a former council planner himself noted that “Whilst it is accepted that back land development could be harmful, where you have a situation that is in fact being improved and the physical size of the proposal is no more than that of the existing building it makes sense to see the benefits being provided through the provision of a new high quality home and the rejuvenation of this part of a suburban street in Brent.”
Naturally the clients were pleased with the result and look forward to a happy and (hopefully) restful Christmas before DAP work to discharge the few pre-commencement conditions in the new year as part of the decision.

Planning Permission for Driveways

Emulating a change in the law in England in October 2008, planning consent is presently needed for mortgage holders wishing to clear a front enclosure with a hardstanding of more than five square meters on the off chance that they are not utilizing a porous material.

One of the fundamental explanations behind the new enactment is that the conversion of gardens to driveways in urban ranges has expanded the measure of water that goes into the storm channels when it rains, and this has helped the increment in flooding.

Driveways

New Regulations

Under the new regulations, planning authorization is not obliged in the event that you are making a driveway from a semi-penetrable or porous material, or if the water is controlled to a garden, outskirt or Soakaway to empty regularly. This is to verify that rainwater gradually leaks into the street seepage framework, instead of running straight into the waste framework which causes flooding.

Obviously, one or two driveways won’t have a perceptible effect on the waste framework, yet the pattern for transforming an arrangement into a carport has gotten to be expanding prominent as of late, as numerous householders want to have carport than a front grass. The aggregate impact of water spilling out of a huge number of cleared enclosures has included additional weight an obsolete seepage framework that was never intended to adapt to the expanded water levels. Actually, hard surfaces can expand surface water run-off by up to half.

What are Acceptable Materials?

The sort of porous surfaces that are satisfactory incorporate Gravel, penetrable Block Paving, and permeable solid and black-top. Garages fabricated before October 2008 don’t need to increase planning authorization reflectively.

There are additionally different issues for forestalling arrangements being transformed into garages, for example, the devastation of microclimates where creepy crawlies and grubs can survive that thusly are sustenance for little creatures and winged animals, and the way that hard surfaces reflect the hotness of the sun as opposed to ingest it.

Contact the Highways Department

One particular point where dialogs with the neighborhood gathering will be needed is whether you want to put in another garage that crosses the asphalt or skirt outside your home. In this case, you will need to acquire the authorization of the Highways Department at the council. They will likewise oblige that the kerb be dropped to street level so it isn’t harmed when you drive your auto over it.

The procedure for doing this changes from district to locale. A few committees will demand doing the work themselves, however others will just do it on the off chance that they happen to be refinishing at the time. On the off chance that they don’t do it without anyone else’s help they will presumably oblige you to utilize affirmed foremen to do the work.
