I know a few people that will be pleased to see this, but is there any chance it'll actually reopen or will it just end up as a boarded up pub?! Lambeth vetoes plan to cut size of Lower Marsh's Camel & Artichoke http://www.london-se1.co.uk/news/view/9069 @se1 #planning #pub

Starter Homes for Londoners

The Housing White paper has finally been published and despite changes since the draft, starter homes are still likely to remain too expensive most Londoners and the first time buyers they're meant to help get on the ladder.

After months of waiting, the document that was meant to help the housing market is with us and includes a serious watering down of the starter homes policy, which, whilst capping price at 80% of market value is a good idea in principle - as with affordable homes capping, in London particularly - this cap is way too high with starter homes potentially costing up to £450,000 according to Remarkable Engagement.

Looks like we're still waiting for the miracle to happen. In the meantime, let's get building and more homes in London!

If you need help obtaining planning permission, be it an extension for an existing dwelling or a larger redevelopment project for several new homes, or prior approval application for conversion from office to residential use, do not hesitate to get in touch!

There certainly seems to be some differing opinions about the provision of affordable housing for small sites, following Planning Minister, Brandon Lewis’s announcement in November 2014 via a written ministerial statement that stated for developments of 10 homes or fewer, affordable housing and tariff style contributions through s. 106 obligations should not be sought. In designated rural areas, the threshold was set at five homes or fewer.

The changes were introduced via a subsequent update to the National Planning Policy Guidance.

Many local authorities have already stopped seeking affordable provision for such schemes, however two authorities have joined together to launch judicial review proceedings over the Government’s changes to the use of Section 106 agreements, whereas the London Borough of Islington and other authorities are sticking by their policy to require an affordable housing contribution for small sites.

Watch this space. It’s going to be an interesting few months to see how this develops!

Amazing to end last week with a positive decision, approving an application for a Certificate of Lawful Existing Use in Lambeth; I'm expecting another this week for a care home in Suffolk. Let's hope we can make this month a 100% success rate with all my planning decisions!

Having worked with Gravity Force to successfully obtain planning permission for the first trampoline park in the UK with FullerLong, things sound promising for many more popping up across the country. I'm looking forward getting down there myself for a visit! 

Slowly getting back into the marketing drive having had my head down working on projects for the summer. I've now got some breathing space again. Think I'll need to take someone on at some point to help me with everything before long. Happy days :)
