Having carried out a remote desktop desgn review for a proposed paragragh 79 house in Kent at the end of 2018, Rob Hughes (Planning Consultant at Hughes Planning) said:-

"We are delighted to have secured permission for our 14th Para 79 house approval in June 2019.  At the request of Dover District Council, we approached The Design Review Panel to undertake an independent review of our scheme and in the light of the positive comments that were received, this provided the necessary confidence and assurance to the Local Planning Authority that the proposals met the 'high bar' set by Para 79(e) of the National Planning Policy Framework.  We would like to thank the Panel for their invaluable role in assisting the design team in achieving approval for a fabulous scheme."
