Some examples of recent projects that TMP Planning have been involved with include:
Housing projects - Currently providing support to The Town Planning Experts with a range of small scale residential planning applications and appeals across England including new dwellings, conversion of single dwellings to flats, Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs), change of use and Prior Notification Offices to Residential Conversion.
Planning Appraisal, Industrial Estate, Somerset - This project involved undertaking a review of the planning history and planning policies affecting the site and advising the client on potential planning options
Running a Business from Home, Wiltshire - This involved providing advice to client who ran a small business from home and was being threatened with Enforcement Action by the Council. I was able to provide advice and support in replying to a Planning Contravention Notice and persuade that the Council that no material change of use had occured and permission was not needed.
3 Flats to 1 dwelling, South Wales - I provided planning advice and support on how to achieve planning permission to convert three flats back into one dwelling for use by a small religious community
Supporting Parish Council in making Local Plan Representations - The project involved drafting representations to a consultation on proposals to meet Oxford's Housing Needs in Cherwell District Council. With a proposed allocation of 4,400 homes, potentially within the Green Belt, TMP reviewed consultation documents and prepared representations for the Parish Council.
