We were contacted by our client after their recent retrospective application had been refused by Birmingham City Council and a decision notice had been issued to our client refusing the application, a previous Lawful development Application had also been refused for this development.
Our client was aware the next step was for Birmingham City Council to issue an enforcement notice to take the development down and wanted to avoid that if at all possible.
The refusal reasons given by the Birmingham City Council this case were that the proposed extension does not comply with the 45 Degree Code for House Extensions and would lead to a loss of outlook and light to No 194 Alexander Road.
For this appeal we produced a 13 page detailed appeal statement, working our way through the delegated officers report and decision notice, dismantling their objections and reasons to refuse.
Providing a comprehensive and robust argument bringing national and local policies into play and detailed reasoning as to why the findings were wrong and in-fact this development for a Retrospective Rear Extension in the Birmingham City Council area was perfectly acceptable.
Additionally we completed a detailed amount of research to find very similar cases that the planning inspectorate had previously granted and looked to use these cases to support our argument.
As this appeal was a House Holder appeal the local authority which in this case was Birmingham City Council did not have the right of response to our appeal statement.
This case like the vast majority of similar cases was dealt with by way of Written Representation and as such it is paramount that the argument is bang on from the off as there is no second chance to respond.
