Planning Enforcement Appeal Case Study Rear Extension Barking and Dagenham

This video is a case study detailing a recent enforcement planning appeal we undertook for a client in the Barking and Dagenham Council area for an extension that had been built and a previous retrospective applications had been refused.

This case started for us when we were contacted by our client because they had received from Barking and Dagenham Enforcement team an enforcement notice stating that there was believed to be a breach in planning control.

The enforcement notice stated that the rear extension due to its excessive depth, an overbearing impact on neighbouring properties and as such it was contrary to local policies BP8 and BP11 and the borough wide development policies plan document along with the Residential Extensions and alterations supplementary planning document.

The enforcement notice from Barking and Dagenham Council stated that to comply our client should

1) Remove the unauthorised extension in its entirety
2) Remove all subsequent waste material from the premises.

Effectively providing no option for any compromise or reduced scheme, but simply take down and remove the extension.

The enforcement notice was issued on 16th December 2020 and the client was given until 16th January 2021 to submit an appeal to the Planning Inspectorate or the enforcement would become active and would need to be complied by 16th April 2021 at the latest.

Full details of this case are detailed in the video above.
