On 28 September our client’s appeal against the refusal of planning permission for a residential led development comprising 78 dwellings and commercial space close to Hampton Court Palace was allowed. 

The site is occupied by a commercial development, and part of a strip of land lying between Hampton Court Way (the A309) and the railway line from Waterloo. After a long period of pre-application discussion with officers of Elmbridge District Council, we submitted a full application which was recommended for approval but refused in response to local objections raised concerns, amongst other things, that the proposal was out of character with the area.
