Planning Permission News November 2019
Our latest planning permission news from November:
Grade II Listed Building Extension
Fowlers have recently obtained planning permission and listed building consent for an extension to this Grade II listed house.
The house, which is set in large grounds, has some unusual past additions. Our planning permission provides a much improved living space, as well as improving the flow and circulation space within the house.
In particular, the extension to the kitchen will provide a much more integrated living and dining space, thus creating a modern ‘heart’ to the house.
On-going design work for the site includes a new swimming pool, as well as improvements to the outbuildings to ensure they are utilised to their full potential.
New House in Garden of Listed Building
An unusual and interesting project in Wiltshire is nearly ready to begin on site. We secured planning permission for a new house in the garden of a Grade II Listed cottage near the centre of a busy market town. The house is designed partly underground, which helps reduce its impact on its surroundings.
More recently, we secured planning permission for some minor changes to the design. The house will be a modern one bedroom home over two storeys. The design includes and open plan space downstairs, as well as a bedroom suite plus room for a gym and utility room upstairs.
The next step for our clients is to gather technical information and begin thinking about the construction.
Stable Conversion in Listed Farmstead
We secured planning permission to convert a farmstead into 3 houses in a small village in Wiltshire. The farmhouse next door is Grade II Listed, and our clients wanted to make the most of the unused stables. Our original design was refused because the new houses were too close to this important historical building.
So, we looked at our designs again, and reduced the size of the plot nearest to the farmhouse. The new layout now has two single storey houses in the converted stables, and a modest two storey cottage. The finished homes should be full of character, and will ensure this historic spot of the village is enjoyed in future.
