I was looking for advice in dealing with a planning application to build 2 4 bed detached houses on garden land that will be sold by existing home owners to facilitate this. I am doing this on behalf of my father, he is 84 and not computer savvy! He lives directly next door to the house that is planning to sell part of their garden to enable this build.

 

He is strongly opposed to this and requested that I write a letter for him opposing the planning permission. He is concerned re garden privacy, the houses being out of character with the surrounding houses, and whereby he looked into his garden and saw other houses in a cul de sac at the end of the garden he will now have a large house approximately next to the half way point in his garden.

 

It will be an 'eye sore', and it will look out of place among the other houses but I need to put together a constructive letter outlining valid points as to why planning permission should not be passed.

 

 

I have done some research this afternoon, it's a very dry and complicated subject I have also checked our council website (South Staffordshire) but cannot find anything on the criteria they work with, planning requisites etc

 

 

Any advice would be much appreciated as I really want to help him, he is not being objective and will only write an emotional letter whereby I believe by attempting to produce valid evidence against this proposal may be the way forward.

Many thanks in advance.

 

Sorry if this has been posted in the wrong section but I'm sure mods will move if necessary.

Has your Father received a letter from the Planning department asking if he has any objections !

 

Are there other people who will be affected by this building - have you spoken to them to see if they are going to object - obviously the more people opposed, I think the better chance you might have.

Here are some links that might help you in making an objection.

 

 

 

http://www.planningportal.gov.uk/general/faq/faqapplyprocess

 

What are material considerations?

A material consideration is a matter that should be taken into account in deciding a planning application or on an appeal against a planning decision.

 

Material considerations can include (but are not limited to):

 

Overlooking/loss of privacy

Loss of light or overshadowing

Parking

Highway safety

Traffic

Noise

Effect on listed building and conservation area

Layout and density of building

Design, appearance and materials

Government policy

Disabled persons' access

Proposals in the Development Plan

Previous planning decisions (including appeal decisions)

Nature conservation

However, issues such as loss of view, or negative effect on the value of properties are not material considerations.

I hope you have some success for your Father.

 

My LA has forbidden any further "back garden" building, unless it is for extensions for existing properties.

  • 3 weeks later...

Just wanted to update everyone who advised me re my original post.Following hour after hour of researching local and national planning policies I submitted a letter to the council planning department... the application has been refused! :whoo: Not only was it refused but the notice also stated that no further application was necessary as any build would never meet the criteria required, so no appeal to the applicant either. Happy with the result, well worth the days of reading the hundreds of pages re planning policies...by far the most boring reading I have ever had to do. Many thanks to all who sent advice.:smile:
