Following on from an extremely successful 2015 which saw Preston Bennett Planning secure planning permission for over 500 units, January has set the bar for what should be a prolific year.
“If January is anything to go by, we can expect a particularly successful 2016,” comments Planning and Development Director Richard Henley. “We welcome two new additions to our department who bring a wealth of experience and a unique set of skills to our team. Marguerite Cahill - previously a Senior Planning Officer at Hertsmere Borough Council - and Zachary Croft - who joins us from Persimmon Homes - are poised to continue and expand upon our already comprehensive town planning consultancy service, and I am delighted to welcome them to Preston Bennett in association with Hamptons International.”
With a range of conversion and redevelopment projects in the pipeline, Preston Bennett Planning can already report numerous positive outcomes throughout the month of January.
Our team recently led a multi-disciplinary team of consultants to secure planning and listed consent for a new development of 25 luxury two and three bedroom apartments in Harefield Place, The Drive, Ickenham (London Borough of Hillingdon). The project, which was the former Blockbusters headquarters, will see the re-use of previously developed and underutilised land in the Green Belt and the restoration of a vacant, deteriorating Grade II listed building. The proposal includes associated basement car, cycle and motorcycle parking, as well as private and communal amenity spaces, and comprehensive landscape enhancement.
Continuing the success achieved with Harefield Place, Preston Bennett also advised Zeus Management Services Ltd. on their recent scheme in Harrow. Miller House on Rosslyn Crescent in Harrow - which is a part of the wider Lexus House site - recently received approval for an office to residential conversion. This scheme is a continuation of the significant number of office to residential conversions that Preston Bennett has gained approval for over the past two and a half years since the government introduced new streamlined Permitted Development rules in May 2013.
Preston Bennett also secured an extension on appeal to Carmine Court (London Borough of Harrow) which is a brand new collection of studio, one and two bedroom apartments in Rayners Lane.
Furthermore, our team has secured planning approval for a new development of 27 units and a basement carpark in Hendon. Spectrum House is a former office and warehouse site in the London Borough of Barnet.
