4D Planning's role

4D Planning were instructed to advise the client on the best way to achieve planning permission for a Cafe and Restaurant as well as outdoor seating. On the first floor there was a recording studio that did not benefit from planning permission. We advised the client to produce evidence that the first floor was in use as a recording studio for over 10 years. Our client provided us with the evidence and 4D Planning were instructed to produce the drawings for the application. A year later the applicant applied for a change of use under Prior Approval from A1 to A1/A3 to allow for additional foods to be cooked and served on site. The current use class is E.
