29 Carlton Crescent, Southampton (13/01425/FUL)

Planning permission was obtained for the client’s physiotherapy practice to operate from safeguarded office space after a consultation from the client’s agent, Malcolm Stevens of Metroscape Ltd. 

The council’s Planning and Rights of Way Panel was successfully persuaded to allow an exception to the usual policy stance to protect existing office space, owing to the small floorspace involved and similar employment levels provided.

Testimonial from the client (Metroscape Ltd.):

“We have worked with Achieve Planning & Urban Design for a number of years using their professional & expedient services for the involvement of new build residential projects undertaken mainly within the Hampshire area. Steve Lawrence’s broad knowledge and experience of the National & Local Area planning systems & his careful approach to both design & development have been both influential & invaluable in helping us secure crucial planning permissions for our clients.”
