Hi

I have a friend who has horse stables within the defined green belt.
Now this horse stable is situated end of a row of terraced houses. The stable is L shaped and is 11.3m by 9.2m.

Please see attached site plan. The plans are to demolish the stables and construct a 2 storey house on the foot print 11.3m by 9.2m.

My friend has a site consultation with the planning officer next week.
What are the chances of him getting a successful approval

Ooh, about zilch. Defined green belt was the clue.

Having said that, the budget hoping to encourage more house building, may give him hope.

When you've got a spare few hours sit down and read your local planners green belt policy. They are usually written in undecipherable gobbledygook but there may be some guidance regarding new homes. It also helps to look at similar applications and read the planning officers report to get some idea of the policies.

As Doggit suggested it won't be easy. Apart from anything else there seems to be a distinct lack of amenity space, garden, parking etc.

I would think there is some chance since the land has been developed and it is bookending an existing residential development.

I think it would have to be a building of high architectural merit that has a connection with the existing building. In reality that means spending a lot of cash.

However perhaps there has been a previous refusal??? If so then that makes it even harder.

It will be good to hear.

It would be a bit surprising perhaps if there has not been a previous application though, which can be a sort of death knell. However they can be overturned if there is a matieral change in planning policy, or you can construct a very strong argument yourselves.
