Permission for a beautiful bespoke greenhouse designed by Hartley Botanic has been secured. The construction of a greenhouse usually falls under permitted development, however due to its placement within the curtilage of a grade II listed building and its location within the local conservation area, planning permission was required. The applicant sought our assistance to rectify the invalidation letter of their previously submitted application. Our role was to submit a heritage statement that clearly assessed the level of potential harm of the proposed development on the designated heritage asset, which in this case was neutral. Once instructed by the applicant, clear communication was established between ourselves and the assigned case officer which allowed for a smooth process and a happy outcome for the client.

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.
