Here at Adam Roberts it’s not just major residential projects that we get involved with. Recently we achieved planning permission for one of our clients, an educational charity Trust, based up in Durham.
The Shaw Trust wanted to extend their horticulture offering to their client base, which includes severely disabled unemployed adults. The great work the Trust was already doing in making sure their clients had access to welfare to work and social care programmes has recently been expanded, with the local authorities’ decision to grant planning to a poly tunnel infrastructure capable of growing 45,000 units on the Shaw Trust’s site.
Adam Roberts consulted and lodged the planning application, including preparing the drawings of the poly tunnels. We are pleased to have been involved in a project that will work towards making a difference in so many people’s lives, and we are pleased to add this project to our commercial portfolio.
We have also recently acted on a large residential extension. What was special about this project was that our client had almost completed the building works when we came on board to produce the planning application.
Unfortunately, due to previous poor professional advice our clients believed they already had planning permission for this extension. However the planners informed that they did not have permitted development rights in the green belt, as they had been led to believe.
Fortunately, Adam Roberts were able to step in, produce new plans and manoeuvre this sensitive application to a successful conclusion, which included a new boundary timber fence not normally accepted on a green belt site.
We are proud to have been able to come to our clients’ aid and get a perfect satisfactory planning consent for them, despite this extension’s turbulent planning history.
At Adam Roberts we are happy to take on your unusual planning and design projects. Please get in touch if you have an interesting project you’d like us to look at.
