Short cold days and falling temperatures but not our workload! This last quarter of 2019 has taken us from Hampshire, West Sussex, East Sussex to Kent, Surrey, Essex and South London! We have worked on a variety of cases - extensions to dwellings; new individual houses; alterations/extensions/refurbishments of listed buildings; barn conversions; preparing supporting planning, design & access and heritage statements; neighbourhood planning projects and appeals including a 4-day public inquiry acting as the planning expert witness.
We have also been fortunate to work with great clients - other Consultancies, Local Planning Authorities, development companies and individual homeowners!
A number of our applications and those that we have been involved in have received planning permission and/or listed building consent, and are underway - sometimes we even get to see the results of our hard work.
The sad note was of course seeing the Claremont Hotel, Eastbourne in flames! After securing listed building consent for replacement windows with the last floor completed earlier this year, it is not a pleasant sight!
2020 will bring new challenges for us as we review where we are, what we do and how we grow, adapt and change!
