Highgate High Street, Camden

planning and conservation area consent granted
Highgate High Street, Camden, London
GreerPritchard and Birds Portchmouth Russeum Architects have won planning permission and conservation area consent for a mixed-use development in Highgate Village. Against the advice of English Heritage, and with considerable local opposition, our appeal was allowed. The Inspector agreed that, "supporting material convincingly explains the rationale of the various architectural components of the proposal within an analysis of the site and its context. The scheme thus presents a logical and ordered approach to the site that responds to the surroundings". An eight-year battle to gain consent has come to an end.

60 Dulwich Village
17 May 2012
planning and listed building appeal
GreerPritchard successfully supported Southwark Council's refusal of planning permission and listed building consent at an informal hearing held in April, concerning 60 Dulwich Village in London. We had been instrumental in securing a refusal at Community Council, against officer's recommendation to grant consent. An appeal was subsequently launched. We then represented neighbours at the hearing, arguing that the development would overwhelm the scale and proportions of the Georgian dwelling. The Inspector agreed and the appeal was dismissed.

"The London Borough of Southwark has seen enormous change in the past decade and regeneration projects are springing up across its patch. Julie Greer, now director of her own planning consultancy Greer Pritchard, was at the forefront of this transformation .... 'Design is the one thing people really struggle with,' she says. 'Because I know the culture of local government so well, I can basically tell developers what they need to do to get their consent.' ... She argues that a careful, considered approach to design is a key part of getting schemes through: 'Take the right approach, get something that's welcomed.' "

"Chief among the council's leaders are architect and former head of regeneration Fred Manson — who oversaw a swathe of modern development including Tate Modern and Piers Gough's nearby tower, Bankside Lofts — and the current head of conservation and design, Julie Greer, who last year cemented the council's focus on quality architecture by establishing an independent design review panel featuring big names such as Graham Morrison, Deborah Saunt and Chris Wilkinson." .....

She is skilled at bringing different types of expertise together."
