GCPP was commissioned to appeal against the refusal of planning permission for a conservatory to a replacement dwelling in the Green Belt.  The Council refused permission on the grounds that the replacement dwelling significantly larger than the original dwelling on this site and that the conservatory was therefore inappropriate development.  However, GCPP undertook detailed research into the planning history and case law and successfully argued that the Council had wrongly assessed the size of the original dwelling and that the proposed conservatory was not inappropriate development in the Green Belt.
