D&M Planning has been instrumental in obtaining planning permission for the replacement of an existing bungalow with two new houses.

Located within the settlement of West Horsley and ‘washed-over’ by Green Belt; during the pre-application stage, the Council considered that the replacement of one dwelling with two new homes would be unacceptable. However, D&M were able to help create a suitable design solution and provide supporting documentation to overcome the Council’s concerns.

When assessing the proposal, the Officers’ Report said ‘The proposal is considered to represent appropriate development in the Green Belt and would not have any detrimental impact upon the character of the site and surrounding area, neighbouring amenity, highway safety or protected species.’
