Retrospective Permission

Retrospective Permission for Erection of Dormer

After an enforcement notice, we’ve achieved our client in Hackney retrospective permission for the erection of a rear dormer.

What is retrospective permission?

It’s the planning permission granting the Local Authority’s planning approval after the development was already undertaken, whether it was completed or not yet.

Property owners who have undertaken development without planning permission would need to apply for this permission, or else they could face enforcement notices and penalties.

However, within a limited period of time, you can still apply after receiving the enforcement notice. Contact us for advice on what could be done in your case.

Rear Extension of 24.2m

Extensions are one of the most preferable options for property owners to expand their living space. You can always have a room bigger by applying for an extension. It could be a double-storey extension, on the ground and first floor of your dwelling, or just a single one on the ground floor – a rear extension in this case- like the one this property owner in Castle Point applied for.

By adding this extension to the ground floor from the rear side, our client will manage to have a more spacious kitchen and lounge on the ground floor. Check out the drawings to see the difference.

Call us if you want to apply, too, or call for free advice on your case!

Rear Extension Planning Permission In Haringey

Why get a rear extension?

Property owners get extensions, whether a rear one or any other because they are looking for expanding their living space. But extensions require planning permission, and here comes our part of the work.

Our client here was looking for a more spacious kitchen on the ground floor. The best solution was to plan an extension to the rear for them.

The process of planning the rear extension

And we did; a site survey was conducted, the existing plans were drawn up, and the proposed ones, as well. We’ve recently received the decision notices and the proposal was approved. Now the client can start the construction process and this has to happen within 3 years from they were granted permission.

When we plan properties, we take a lot of things into account, including the client’s desired outcome, the local authority’s rules, and the council’s potential concerns. Our team works cooperatively to get all of that done in harmony. Thanks to our ex-planning officers, we have the experience to get the job done.
