House in the Green Belt Wins Approval

We have designed and secured planning permission for a new 5,000ft² house in one of Solihull’s premier locations, Lovelace Avenue. There had been numerous applications over the years for new plots along the avenue, almost all of which have been refused, including on this site. Lovelace Avenue is in the Green Belt and outside Solihull’s development boundary. We had recently secured planning permission for very large extensions to the property, as our client did not consider there was any chance of getting permission for a new house to the side of their own. However, there has recently been a change in interpretation of Solihull’s infill plot policy, and a related High Court ruling, the combin

Success for West Midlands Fire Service

We have secured a crucial planning permission at Perry Barr, Birmingham for West Midlands Fire Service (WMFS). The permission allows WMFS to create a new access to their eight existing houses behind Perry Barr Fire Station. Our approved proposal means the houses could be accessed separately to the access used by fire and rescue vehicles. The current awkward layout of the site means the houses can only be reached by using an emergency vehicle access route. Originally, the houses were meant for on-site fire service staff so sharing an access did not create any problems. However, over the years, fire station staffing has changed with an increase in part-time staff. This has rendered the on-site

Agricultural Building to New Dwelling Success

We are delighted to have designed, submitted and obtained on behalf of our client the conversion of an agricultural building to create a sizable new dwelling across 2 floors. The building, of about 378m2, is a traditionally-built portal frame structure, in a three-bay configuration with concrete blockwork up to eaves level and profiled fibre cement sheeting with some translucent profiled roof lights. The approved conversion works, which were designed by our Architectural Team, will introduce a new first floor and create a 5 bedroomed dwelling with integral double garage. Our Planning Team made sure the ‘prior approval notification’ to the council fitted the various specific requirements of t

Approval for Green Belt Infill housing

Tyler Parkes is delighted to have secured full planning permission for a development of 8 new open market homes on behalf of our Clients, Kendrick Homes Ltd. The application site consists of a 0.36 hectare piece of land located within the Green Belt in the immediate proximity of, but outside, the adopted settlement boundary of Romsley, in Bromsgrove District Council’s area. As well as its Green Belt status, the site had no previous housing allocation but despite this Tyler Parkes successfully presented the case that the site reads as an integral part of the Village and the proposed sustainable development amounted to limited infilling in line with Paragraph 145 of the National Planning Polic

Wyre Forest Local Plan Review Update

Wyre Forest District Council is set to agree the latest version of its Local Plan for consultation during September and October, subject to Cabinet approval on 16th July 2019.
