Class MA Change of use to residential from Shop in Barnet

The existing property retail shop closed due to its lack of viability and was vacant with ancillary uses on the upper floors. Following appointment by our client we secured planning permission for the conversion for entire property to three residential units.  

Concept planning was appointed by the client following the failure of the initially appointed planning consultant to secure planning approval. Concept planning has a strong background and knowledge base in dealing with Prior notification approvals. To ensure the submission was considered positively and all relevant aspects of the criteria in the legislation were adhered to, we engaged our network of consultants and prepared robust evidence including a parking survey, noise report and daylight/sunlight report to accompany the prior notification submission.

The securing of planning approval for the client represented a significant increase and uplift in value of the site while maintaining a viable ground floor commercial unit in a shopping parade. Following the discharge of conditions submitted by concept planning and their subsequent approval works are now underway.
