Planning Permission News July 2019

Our latest news from the Planning team on some of our recent planning permissions.

Rare Listed Building in South Downs National Park

Fowlers has recently secured planning permission and listed building consent for a significant extension and re-modelling of this listed building in the South Downs National Park.

The farmhouse has a rare and special example of mathematical tiles on the main elevation. It is also part of a collection of farm buildings – some of which we achieved permission for earlier in the year.

The size of the extension was justified by analysing historic maps of the site. We found that there had been earlier buildings on the site that have since been demolished. Fowlers worked pro-actively with both the client and the Council to help resolve issues of design and impact arising.

6 New Homes in Andover

Fowlers have recently obtained Full Planning Permission to replace a redundant garage in Andover with 6 new family homes.

The site is located within a predominately residential area of the town. The planning officers agreed that the new houses will complement the character of the area. The garage site was also no longer required to meet the economic development needs of the area.

Construction has started within weeks of the permission, which shows the value of these smaller developments in meeting local housing needs.

New Build Farmhouse in Hampshire

Fowlers were successful in securing planning permission for a new build farmhouse on the edge of Amport earlier this year. This plot is now on the market.

The site is in an isolated location in the open countryside. However, it benefited from a Class Q approval to convert an existing agricultural barn to residential use in 2018. This was a material consideration when the Council considered a fresh proposal to remove the barn and erect a new dwelling.

Due to concerns expressed locally the Application was considered at Planning Committee, where we successfully represented our clients, and secured planning permission.
