Replacement Windows In Conservation Area – Retrospective

The client replaced windows back in 2011 on the assumption that it would be permitted development and therefore no planning permission was required. When trying to sell the property the client was unable to do so as there was no legal determination to prove the replacement windows were lawful. After contacting the council they were informed that retrospective planning permission is required as the site is within a conservation area. Following a planning appraisal with one of our chartered town planners, it was determined that retrospective planning permission was feasible. One of our chartered architects prepared the required architect drawings, which the client approved. Following approval of the architectural design, one of our chartered town planners prepared the required planning statement, to justify why the council should approve the application. With the client's approval, the architect drawings and planning statement were submitted with a retrospective planning application. After a few months waiting for the council to determine the application planning permission has now been approved for the replacement windows which means the client is protected from enforcement action and can now sell the property.
