Project Overview

A planning application submitted for a three-storey rear extension to enable an internal reconfiguration of 7 existing one-bed flats to create 4 two-bed and 5 one bed flats for a total of 13 bedrooms on a period property within the Conservation Area.

Warner Planning positively engaged with Warwick District Council responding to feedback received on previously withdrawn applications to submit a revised application to extend this property situated within the Conservation Area in Leamington Spa.

Throughout the determination of the application a number of additional queries were raised by the Council particularly around parking, proposed internal space standards, outlook and finer architectural details.  These key challenges relating to a period property were dealt with sensitively and with regular oversight from the Council. Ultimately the Council were able to offer Officer support for the proposed works and all technical queries and planning matters were all overcome via collaborative working with the Council and particularly through building an excellent working relationship with the Case Officer which was mutually beneficial to both parties.

The application was recommended for approval by Officers and was presented and debated at the Planning Committee in January 2024 where it was approved by Members of Committee.
