Old Barklye, Heathfield
To regularise planning status
The client approached DJM Town Planning to regularise the planning status of their ornamental gardens. The gardens had been lovingly created by Mr and Mrs Atkinson, the former owners, and which then became something of a local attraction.
The client had contemporary newspaper cuttings of the garden open days and a wealth of old photographs, evidence we submitted to the Council to prove the established use of the land as formal gardens. Wealden District Council subsequently issued a Lawful Development Certificate.
