The Appeal scheme related to an infill plot in Farmborough whereby the key issues related to the character of the dwelling proposed (which had a modern flavour) and access arrangements.  At the application determination stage the scheme received forceful objection from the Council Officers.  We worked in conjunction with the Scheme Architect (the Architecture Practice, Bath) and Entran Ltd Transport Consultants to articulate the planning merits of the scheme.  It was hugely pleasing to receive a successful decision whereby the Inspector stated, “I take no issue with the overtly contemporary architectural style being proposed. Indeed, in my view, it is a well-considered design response to the site that would be of quality, albeit modern materials” and furthermore the Council’s highway concerns were found to be without substance.
