Permission for three new dwellings in Dorridge
Tyler Parkes has recently been successful in obtaining planning permission for new residential dwellings on two separate sites in Dorridge, nr. Solihull. Our Architectural Team designed both schemes and our Planning Team took the applications though the planning application process, including presenting at Solihull’s Planning Committee in the case of the Avenue Road proposal.
The first scheme, on Avenue Road, proposed replacing a single dwelling with two new properties. The development will make better use of a sustainable urban space and provides a development that is attractively designed and more energy efficient than the existing dwelling. The Council agreed that the scheme was entirely acceptable and in accordance with adopted planning policies. The scheme had to be decided at the Council’s Planning Committee due to neighbour objections. The scheme was deferred for further information on landscaping and orientation but planning permission was subsequently granted.
The second approval comprises a replacement dwelling on Knowle Wood Road in Dorridge. The existing dwelling, a 1970s bungalow was dated in design terms, but with a large garden, typical of the period. The replacement dwelling would be 2 storeys in height, inkeeping with the character of the road and area. We arranged for a tree survey to be undertaken as the new dwelling would be closer to existing trees. The survey confirmed that there was no concern in respect of trees and planning permission was granted accordingly under delegated powers.
