Parker Dann obtained planning permission for a major extension to Fonteyn House in Reigate town centre together with significant remodelling works to the exterior to support its use as the new headquarters for Osborne. Initial advice was provided during the company’s search for new premises that identified the planning policy issues that needed to be addressed to enable the development to proceed. Pre-application discussions were then arranged with Reigate and Banstead Borough Council’s Planning Department to progress the proposals during their design development and to ensure all the authority’s issues were addressed. Parker Dann co-ordinated the preparation and submission of the planning application with its various supporting statements and documents. The case for the grant of planning permission was accepted by the Council along with an explanation as to why financial contributions towards local transport infrastructure should not be required as part of the development.
Following the grant of planning permission, Parker Dann co-ordinated the discharge of relevant pre-commencement planning conditions and minor amendments to the consent in accordance with the tight build programme that the client required.
