Inspire Planning Solutions were commissioned by Cedargate Developments to work as part of a team alongside the Project Architects’ to obtain planning permission for a mixed use development comprising of new homes and retail space on Roman Road, Bow in East London.
The site consisted of a dilapidated property, which had seen many unsympathetic alterations over the years, which detracted from the historic and architectural character of the Conservation Area. By highlighting the positive benefits of redevelopment, we put forward a comprehensive renewal of the frontage, an additional storey to bring the building into line with the remaining area. To deliver a development that was viable, a three story rear extension was also incorporated into the design.
In a dense, highly built up area, where the Council were concerned about the effect on neighbours light, privacy and future living conditions, we were able to show through a Daylight and Sunlight Assessment, and high quality 3D images that there would be no such effect. Inspire Planning Solutions co-ordinated the application and negotiated closely with the London Borough of Tower Hamlets to obtain planning permission. Result!
Farooq Rafiq, Director at Inspire Planning Solutions commented that:
“persistent, persuasion and a collaborative effort came together in delivering that all important planning permission”
