Conversion of Former Chapel to Dwellinghouse in Stroud

Planning permission and listed building consent have been secured to convert a former chapel (F.1) into a dwellinghouse (C3) in the small Cotswold village of Jacks Green, Stroud.

Due to the sensitive nature of this site, a keen eye for detail was essential to the success of the proposal. Open and clear communication with other working professionals greatly aided this application as valuable contributions were made from Aboricultural, heritage and highway consultants. Although a challenging application at times, effective collaboration ensured a positive outcome for all those involved and helped to revitalise a valuable heritage asset.

Location: Elkstone Studios, Elkstone

Case Type: Change of use of a disused agricultural workers dwelling to farm shop and cafe

Council: Cotswold District Council

Status: Approved

BPA has secured planning permission from Cotswold District Council for the change of use of a former grain store to flexible commercial use.

The development is located within the Elkstone Studios enterprise and comprises the final barn to secure permission on site. The development will benefit from the existing conversions of a mixture of commercial and leisure uses providing a small rural hub for both occupiers of the offices and the local community.

Building upon other successful permissions secured at this site, this development comprises an employment-generating use in association with an existing business, and relates to the diversification of a wider agricultural enterprise.  It has been a real pleasure to assist in the diversification of this site and we can't wait to see it complete and occupied!
