The Stables, Postlip, Near Winchcombe

Overwhelming support at Tewkesbury Borough Council Planning Committee meeting this morning for an application to convert a disused former stables building into two holiday let units.  Brodie Planning are pleased with the success of this submission due to the support this type of development offers the rural economy and moreover, securing an appropriate use for a disused historic building thereby prolonging its life.  The preparation of the application required careful consideration on a number of complex matters including the non-designated heritage asset status of the building and its siting within a rich historic context (both natural and built); the presence of bats in the building; along with more typical requirements for surface water and foul drainage, and highway/sustainable transport matters.
