BPA has secured planning permission for the stationing of a “Mezzanine Pod” as an ancillary outbuilding in Cheltenham.
This application involved the demolition of the existing garage to allow for the stationing of a Mezzanine Pod as an ancillary outbuilding. The purpose of this development was to create a safe independent space for a teenager with ADHD, as a place they can escape to and call their own.
Due to the quirky design of the pod, we undertook pre-application discussions with Cheltenham Borough Council which concluded positively and allowed for the progression to a householder application. The Mezzanine Pod itself is designed by a local company called My Shire Houses, which build a range of bespoke structures, priding themselves on using all-natural materials and keeping hand craftsmanship alive. More details of their work and other pods available can be found at https://www.myshirehouses.co.uk/
Through our strong planning submission and positive engagement with the case officer, the application was approved under delegated authority.
