Prior Notification approved under Class O (offices to residential) in Exeter

C2C Planning Consultants have assisted with the successful submission of a prior notification application to Exeter City Council for the conversion of a small block of offices in a residential part of Exeter to 5 apartments.

As Class O does not allow for external alterations, such as the removal of the garage door in the photo above, a tandem planning application was submitted for the external alterations required to better facilitate the conversion.

Permission was granted for both and we have a happy client!


Conversion of Grade II Listed hotel to a dwelling and alternative use of separate manager’s dwelling

At East Devon’s Planning Committee, we gained planning permission for the change of use of this Grade II Listed building from a hotel and restaurant to a single dwelling, in the beautiful Exe Valley.

At the same time, we got flexible planning permission for the manager’s dwelling within the grounds to become an annex associated with the Listed Building or as a separate holiday let, making it a much more saleable in a wider market.

The manager’s accommodation also had an associated S106 Legal Agreement that required C2C Planning Consultants to apply for its removal, having successfully been granted the variation of the condition.
