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.

Conversion of Former Doctors Surgery to Residential

Conversion of Former Doctors Surgery to Residential

Conversion of former doctors surgery to residential 

Planning permission has been granted for external alterations to facilitate the conversion of a former doctors surgery to residential. The design and construction methods of the proposals required careful consideration due to the fact the existing building is situated on a Scheduled Ancient Monument – a very rare Bronze Age enclosure of which only 10 have been identified within the country.

To further complicate matters, the proposals also had the potential to impact upon the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the setting of a Conservation Area. However, we were able to demonstrate that the current building is negative feature within the landscape and that the proposed works would positively enhance the immediate area.
