Elm Grove, Brighton


Application for a sixth bedroom

In 2022, we submitted an application to Brighton & Hove City Council for a sixth bedroom in a house in multiple occupation in the city. Despite the Planning Officer recommending approval for the bedroom, Brighton & Hove Planning Committee refused the application.

DJM Town Planning appealed the decision to the Planning Inspectorate, and the appeal was allowed. In granting permission for the bedroom, the Inspector particularly noted the high quality of the living space, being pleasantly laid out, furnished and equipped.

We have continued to work for this client, assisting him with his portfolio of well-appointed properties in the city.
