Planning permission granted for a small infill in Orpington

Optimis is delighted to have secured planning permission for a single dwelling infill at Petten Grove in Orpington.

The previous scheme was lost at appeal, however, one of the reasons for refusal was thrown out by the Inspector. The subsequent revised scheme therefore only focused on one concern – “due to the proposed spacing and the dwelling’s width, the scheme would result in a cramped form of development due to its scale and layout”.

This issue was successfully addressed in a revised application and Bromley Council was satisfied that the amendments had overcome the previous appeal decision. Consequently, the scheme was considered to be acceptable and planning permission was granted.
