The detached dormer bungalow had previously been extended past the LPA’s suggested 30% local planning policy, however, our clients weren’t aware of the policies when they purchased the property and still wanted substantial green belt house extension. Following an initial review, we suggested a planning strategy not only to further extend the house but also to create complimentary outbuildings. The site was quite complex with an irregular shape and substantial level changes. The site was fairly exposed with fantastic panoramic views across Cheshire.

Ultimately we achieved approval for a green belt house extension (not including outbuildings) over 200% larger than the “existing” house but almost 300% larger than the “original” dwelling.
