Change of Use – Tewkesbury High Street

Change of Use – Tewkesbury High Street

BPA has secured planning permission for change of use from sweet shop to nail salon for a listed building on Tewkesbury High Street.

This project entailed the change of use from a sweet shop (A1 retail) to a nail salon (Sui Generis) including both external and internal alterations to the property. External alterations included a new shop front, new signage to the front of the property and the re-opening of the side doorway with the installation of a new door. Due to the nature of this site, careful planning and sensitive design was required in order to fulfill the clients vision and make their new premises a reality in accordance with relevant local and national planning policy.

In what has been a testing year, it’s so rewarding to help a vacant shop find a new purpose and give a helping hand to a new business starting out in the community.

Residential Development in Stow-on-the-Wold

Residential Development in Stow-on-the-Wold

BPA has secured full planning permission for 4no. high-quality detached dwellings in Stow-on-the-Wold.

Due to the sensitive nature of the site (Cotswolds AONB and in close proximity to designated heritage assets) coupled with the site’s complex and rather colourful planning history, we undertook pre-application discussions with the local authority. During which, we successfully established the principle of residential development on the whole of the site area, and sought clarity from the council regarding the issues that needed to be addressed to secure a positive determination. The result is a cleverly designed scheme, incorporating features typical of the Cotswold vernacular with a contemporary twist.

Through our strong planning submission and positive engagement with the case officer, the application was approved under delegated authority

Location: Shirehampton Road, Stoke Bishop, Bristol Case Type: Application to vary pre-commencement conditions Council: Bristol City Council Status: Approved Full planning permission was granted for the demolition of an existing garage and the construction of one new dwelling. The decision notice included 6 pre-commencement conditions, however construction works began on site prior to approval of the relevant details. As such, an application to vary the original permission was submitted in order to regularise the development already undertaken on site. It is important to read the decision notice in full before any work begins. If conditions are not discharged or adhered to you can be subject to planning enforcement action in the form of a Temporary Stop Notice which will prevent you from working on site, or a Breach of Condition Notice which will be visible indefinitely on all future land/property searches. You might also invalidate your planning permission which means that it cannot be implemented lawfully.
