Conversion of non-designated heritage asset to an open market dwelling

Brodie Planning Associates have secured an appropriate residential use for a disused historic building thereby prolonging its life. The preparation of the application required careful consideration on a number of complex matters including the non-designated heritage asset status of the building and its siting within a rich historic context (both natural and built); the presence of bats in the building; highway/sustainable transport matters, along with more typical requirements for surface water and foul drainage.

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.

Conversion of barn and adjoining open store into a dwelling

Status: Awaiting decision

Wychavon District Council ref. 16/02906/GPDQ & 17/00478/FUL

Secured consent to convert the buildings into a dwelling under ‘Class Q’

Following the refusal of planning permission in late 2016 to convert the buildings into a dwelling, BPA were engaged by the owners and in early 2017 secured consent to convert the buildings into a dwelling under ‘Class Q’.

The Class Q provisions are quite restrictive, in particular in relation to the extent of residential curtilage.  Having secured the principle of development under Class Q we revised the scheme and re-submitted the planning application.

The revised scheme is more sympathetic to the historic character of the building than both the previously refused scheme and that approved under Class Q; it also provides the owners with a bespoke dwelling that meets their particular needs, including the provision of a large south-facing garden to the rear of the dwelling.
