Single Storey Side and Rear Extension to an Idyllic Cottage Set in the Cotswold AONB 

BPA are delighted to announce permission has been secured for a single storey side and rear extension to an idyllic cottage located in the village of Woodmancote on the outskirts of Cheltenham.

We worked alongside the conservation officer to deliver a scheme that fulfilled the clients vision whilst respecting the high design standards of developments within the AONB.

Agricultural Building to 4-bed house, Malvern

Agricultural Building to 4-bed house, Malvern

Conversion of an agricultural building to a 4 bedroom house

Set within a rural location with extensive views of the Malvern Hills, BPA are delighted to have secured permission to convert an agricultural building into a 4 bedroom house.

The site contained a 20th Century barn of steel construction and metal cladding. Ordinarily, the conversion of this type of barn would not have been acceptable as it would not have met local planning policy. We therefore used the ‘Class Q’ permitted development route to secure consent for the client and whilst we have secured permission for many homes now under this process, this was a particularly challenging case requiring a very methodical approach.

Through our strong planning submission and positive engagement with the case officer, the application was approved within the 56-day statutory period.

This case provides a prime example of how planning consultants can help to unlock the value of a site. Please do get in touch with us if we can help with a similar project.

Grade II listed Cottage Greenhouse, Poulton

Grade II listed Cottage Greenhouse, Poulton

Time to celery-brate!   

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.
