DMP help Client overturn problem planning… and WON!

Client approaches DMP for urgent help. Living in Camden Park, a very affluent part of Tunbridge Wells originally built for Navy Officers and their families. A planning application at the rear of our Clients house,  threatened to ruin the peace and tranquility they loved so much. A large block of 4 terraced houses proposed recommended and for approval by the local planning officer.

Thin on evidence and armed only with a pencil sketch showing the impact of the proposed redevelopment, our Client contacted DMP for help, advice or simply anything we could do.

We quickly got to work, photographed and created a 3D model of the existing and proposed site using the available information.

Exploring the proposed 3D model gave DMP the unique opportunity to tell the whole story of the proposals, not just the story offered to the planning department by the applicant.

In addition, using the model we extracted a series of perspective images that described the impact of overlooking from the view point of our Client as if standing on their land. Plus perspectives from inside the rooms of the new proposed properties as though you were looking through the window, down upon our Clients site.

Furthermore DMP found numerous faults with the proposed drawings and invited our Client to expose these faults at the planning committee which was only 5 days away.

DMP acted at the drop of a hat and delivered an unusual brief making our Client very happy. With professionalism and accuracy DMP assisted to overturn the planning decision and come out on top!

“Dear John and Jon:  planning hearing last night and WE WON.  It was rejected by a convincing majority.Your wonderful photos were put on a screen during the hearing and one of the committee asked the planning officer (who recommended acceptance)  how accurate they were.  He replied saying that he didn’t know ! Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you both.   We feel quite delighted, along with the rest of our street. Very best wishes.”
