Orangery approved in the Green Belt and AONB
Hindhead, Surrey

Achieving planning permission within the Surrey Hills AONB is a challenge; both national and local policies are framed in a restrictive manner with the aim of preventing development. Achieving planning permission for further extensions on properties which have already been significantly extended is typically considered harmful by definition and should be refused.

Working through a clear strategy, D&M Planning have, however, been able to achieve planning permission for an orangery which increased the total floor space of the property by well over 100% of its original size. The orangery, designed by locally renowned firm Charles Christianson, will enhance the quality of accommodation for the occupiers allowing them to make the most of the property's views across the rolling Surrey Hills.

Thinking clearly and strategically can help to maximise how likely it is that planning permission is granted. All of the planners at D&M Planning have excellent skills in thinking through the best strategy to help you realise your development aims.
