Osborne Planning's Role
Osborne Planning advised the client on the strategy to achieve planning consent for the conversion of the ground floor and first floor of a mixed-use commercial and residential building in Newcastle-Under-Lyme. We advised to apply for Prior Approval and to avoid making changes to the exterior of the building, but rather to focus on the noise, transport impacts and flooding. Osborne Planning produced the architectural drawings designing the flats to meet the building regulations, the planning documents to justify the proposal and to demonstrate compliance with the requirements set out by the Town and Country Act and Planning Policy. We liaised with the planning officers until a decision was issued. The application was approved by Newcastle under Lyme Council.
