Success! Granny Annexe Planning Permission in Maidstone

Granny Annexe Planning Permission in Maidstone

Obtaining Granny Annexe Planning Permission in Maidstone is a great way to provide comfortable and independent living for elderly relatives close by. However, navigating the granny annexe planning permission process in Maidstone can be tricky. This case study explores how NAPC helped a Maidstone client secure approval for their dream granny annexe.

The Challenge

Our client envisioned a spacious detached annexe with two bedrooms, an open-plan living area, and a wet room. While their backyard offered ample space, unforeseen ecological concerns arose. The mature vegetation and trees posed a potential habitat disruption for birds and bats according to the Local Planning Authority (LPA) ecologist.

NAPC’s Solution

We understood the LPA’s concerns and devised a comprehensive strategy. This included:

  • Ecological Mitigation Plan: We developed a detailed plan to enhance biodiversity on the site. This involved installing bat boxes suitable for different bat species and seasons, alongside strategically placed bird feeders and nesting boxes.
  • Compelling Planning Statement: Our planning statement clearly outlined the annexe’s benefits for the family while addressing the ecological concerns. The detailed mitigation plan showcased our commitment to environmental responsibility.

The Result

The LPA ecologist was impressed by our proactive approach, and planning permission was granted! However, a condition required enhancing biodiversity before occupying the annexe – a step NAPC could guide our client through.
