Planning Success in East Kent

  • 201702_Drayson

We are very pleased to be able to report that permission has been granted for this new house near Ashford in Kent. A potentially contentious site in a conversation area village, Thinking Buildings and the consultant team compiled a detailed application to address a number of specific concerns including the visibility of the proposed house and the various ecology issues on the site. We also commissioned professional renders of our design model from Airtight VR, one of which you see here.

Our hard work paid off with vocal support from neighbours and interest groups alike. The robust package of information gave the planning authority confidence in the quality of the scheme and aided the smooth process through the planning system.

Credit should go to all involved and to the very patient client who has waited 18 months from inception to permission. We are all excited to take this project forward in 2017,
