BPA has secured planning permission (19/05402/F) for a large HMO (House in Multiple Occupation) at 116 Manor Road, Fishponds, Bristol, BS16 2ER.
Through the addition of a storey-and-a-half rear extension, the application sought to refurbish a historic building currently used as a small HMO to one with nine-bedrooms, to meet local demand for student accommodation in the immediate area where the University of West England Frenchay campus is located.
With the recent publication of draft Guidance, HMO’s are becoming a priority issue for the local planning authority in certain parts of the city. Should you need assistance with any similar projects please get in touch.
Another great result. Honeybourne Parish Neighbourhood Plan successfully passes Referendum under the guidance and direction of BPA. Thursday’s positive Referendum result saw an impressive 89.5% ‘yes’ vote with a 28% turnout. We have worked with the group from conception, having assisted them every step of the way. It is great to see the Plan successfully pass through a public vote, it will be formally adopted by Wychavon District Council within the next 8 weeks.
Brodie Planning Associates has secured consent (LPA Ref. 19/0625/FULL) for a stable block and tack room in the Green Belt at Solcum Lane, Cookley, Kidderminster, including a Change of Use from agriculture to equestrian. The client approached us knowing that the local planning authority, Wyre Forest District Council, was opposed to equestrian development in an area of rolling countryside and high quality landscapes. Negotiations over contributions to biodiversity were also secured before the permission was approved at Planning Committee. Please get in touch if you have a similar development proposal that requires planning permission.
On behalf of Mike Hartnell of MDH Forestry Services Ltd., Brodie Planning has secured consent for a forestry building within an AONB at Hawton Wood, near Little Compton (Stratford Borough Council – 19/02768/FUL). The building will provide much needed storage space for forestry equipment, plants and machinery and a w/c facility.

The w/c facility will be very useful in this regard!
