Case Study 01: Planning Permission for Change of Use From Single Dwellinghouse to Change Of Use 3 Bedroom House lnto 2 Flats – London Borough of Enfield

The client instructed Homz to provide Planning Consultancy on their property for a Change of Use 3 Bedroom House lnto 2 Flats in London Borough of Enfield. Initially one of our Senior Town Planner has conducted a research within the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) to understand local policies, property planning background, and as to whether the local planning authority is applying any constraints on the property.

The proposed flats will provide a suitable standard of residential accommodation with acceptable internal space and layout and good natural light and outlook and parking provision.  This does not result in the loss of a family dwelling and impact upon the provision of existing family dwellings in the area.

The adopted policies encourage the maintenance and enhancement of existing housing stock. However, proposals must also be assessed in relation to material considerations such as impact on the character of the surrounding area and impact on the neighbours’ amenity. 

After the planning appraisal, our Architects and Town Planners prepared the supporting documents Architectural Plans, and Planning Statements. Please see the plans of this project in our Portfolio. Our team has successfully submitted and managed the planning application with the council. Following the waiting period of the decision, Homz has scored another successful Approval for this planning application on behalf of our client.
