One of our chartered architects prepared the required architect drawings, which the client approved. Following the approved architectural design, one of our chartered town planners prepared the required design and access statement, to justify why the council should approve retrospective listed building consent and planning permission.

Thankfully this means the client will now not need to restore the property to its original state, can now install the new solar panels and is protected from enforcement action indefinitely.
