Commercial Appeal Hearing & Application – London Borough of Waltham Forest

Informal Hearing Planning Appeal:
London Borough of Waltham Forest


Appeal Allowed and subsequent details discharged for use as training centre, community centre/ place of worship and recording studio involving and extension to the hours of the community centre/ place of worship.

The client contacted us after his planning application had failed. We set about appealing his case by way of Informal Hearing as that would enable him ensure his point was clearly communicated to the Inspector.

MZA prepared a detailed appeal statement arguing why the Council’s reasons for refusal were not justified. In particular the Council argued that the proposed church/ community use was at odds with the employment designation of the site and surroundings. MZA argued that in addition to the church there were training facilities for the local community, in particular air-conditioning training.

The Inspector allowed the appeal and granted planning permission on a temporary basis. All conditions were subsequently discharged and the planning permission renewed.
