Selly Oak Enforcement Appeal Success

The Tyler Parkes Partnership is extremely pleased to report that a Government Planning Inspector has quashed an Enforcement Notice issued by Birmingham City Council against our Client and granted planning permission for ground floor and first floor extensions erected at a terraced property within Selly Oak. By way of background, the Council had served an Enforcement Notice on our Client requiring the complete demolition of ground floor rear and side extensions along with a first floor rear extension on the grounds that they had an adverse impact upon the outlook of, and resulted in a loss of light to, neighbouring dwellings; and, that the scale and appearance of the extensions were out of co

Double Dealership Delight for Listers!

Tyler Parkes has just obtained planning permission for two prestigious car dealerships, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche on the outskirts of Hull. For some time lead consultant Gareth Jones has been assisting client The Listers Group Ltd. in their search to find a suitable new site to which to re-locate their Mercedes-Benz dealership from existing premises in Hessle, to the west of the City. At the same time Listers have also been looking for a new site to accommodate a Porsche dealership.

Permission for new Green Belt dwellings in Barston

Tyler-Parkes recently assisted a local housebuilder client with a difficult case for new build houses and the conversion of locally listed buildings to form four dwellings and extensions to a further house in Barston, Solihull within the Green Belt. We compiled ‘Very Special Circumstances’ arguments for the proposals, which were accepted by Solihull Council. This enabled planning permission to be granted for two new dwellings, extension and alterations of an existing dwelling and extension/conversion of existing locally listed buildings to form two new dwellings.

Empty Listed Building Revived as Hair Studio

Tyler Parkes has recently completed the renovation and extension of a Listed Building on High Street, Henley-in-Arden, Warwickshire. When our hair and beauty salon client, Aesthetics, bought the building, it was too small and in poor condition. Added to that, being a Grade II Listed Building dating from the 19th century, any proposed changes to it would be closely scrutinized by the local council and their conservation team. Knowing the building had been subjected to a series of low-quality extensions, we approached the council with a proposal which would replace them with one much larger, high-quality extension. Working closely with Aesthetics, we came up with a design which suited their bu
