Planning permission has been approved for a conservatory in Parbold, Wigan. The decision notice was emailed through from planning today with just two conditions; i) the work must be carried out within three years and ii) the work must be carried out in accordance with the approved plans - all pretty standard stuff!
I am a little late with this bit of news but better late than never. Last week the agricultural workers dwelling that was in for planning was withdrawn, redesigned and resubmitted last week.
After conversations with the planners it was clear a rejection was highly likely and although we feel an appeal would have had a reasonable chance of overturning the decision the client is desperate to get on site and manage his farm as best he can as soon as possible. Things were brought to a head when he lost quite a few bails of silage due to vanadalism and with not living on site there is no way to deter this kind of behaviour.
Good news this week for a client in Hale, Cheshire as the application for her two storey rear extension was granted.
Unusually the planner actually rang me to notify me of the approval rather than just posting the notice out!
A technical guidance document covering the permitted development regime for householders has been published by Communities and Local Government.
The 49-page document is intended to help understand the amendments made to permitted development legislation in October 2008. These set out the rules concerning what extensions, improvements and alterations a householder may make to their house and the area around it without the need for an application for planning permission.

Swift Building Design has just been appointed to redesign the interior layout of a Ladies clothing shop in Longton.
No major works are involved but careful thought needs to be taken to maximise the amount of sales space and rails while still maintaining a nice spacious feel to the shop.
