Snatch House, Farnham Road, West Liss, GU33 6JZ

Acting for the client who lived locally, guidance was offered on how to word a letter of objection to oppose 2 planning applications at the above site (SDNPA references 18/00250/FUL and 18/04899/FUL) – a former dairy depot and distribution plant, now able to be used lawfully as a light industrial workshop.  Details of those applications can be viewed by going to the South Downs National Park Authority website.

The first application was for 4 houses (following the owner’s pre-application enquiry which had suggested 5 were tenable).  The second reduced the amount to 3.

Located within the West Liss Conservation Area, both applications attracted criticisms regarding the design and layout of the scheme which was not considered respectful of attractive older buildings either side of the site (see those below, constituting a cramped overdevelopment of the site.

The client was duly grateful for ACHIEVE’S advice in framing and informing their objection to the Park Authority, based on relevant Development Plan policies.

Testimonial from the client:

"Steve at ACHIEVE Town Planning worked diligently to provide a technical critique of the submitted proposals at ST. Peter's Church, Saddlers, Snatch House and Burgates Lodge, all within very close proximity of my home, based upon published planning policy and guidance.  This helped me to reinforce and structure the points of objection I wanted to make to the National Park Authority and their agents East Hampshire District Council.  Steve's careful analysis on the submitted proposals was prepared to fairly short deadlines and of great assistance to me, representing good value for money."
