Plainview Planning has secured consent for a new health centre (D1 use class) on behalf of the London Travel Clinic.
Our client wished to offer an immunisation service to travel customers from their existing B1 office location. The office was situated in Soho Square, where Westminster Council have a stringent B1 retention policy.
Plainview Planning successfully argued that there would be no significant reduction in B1 office space and also devised a safe waste disposal management plan (a potential issue raised by the LPA).
Following negotiation with the case office our proposals were accepted by the LPA and approval was granted.
