Winchcombe Methodist Church

We are delighted to announce that on the 24th November, we received planning permission from Tewkesbury Borough Council for the conversion of Winchcombe Methodist Church to a community performing arts centre.

Winchcombe Arts and Community Hub (WACH), in association with WAM Youth, Winchcombe’s ‘We All Matter’ youth group, sought to convert the Methodist Church and to transform it into a versatile, dynamic hub that fosters creativity, inclusivity, and community spirit. At Brodie Planning, we were delighted to to join in on this ambitious project.

WACH envision a space that facilitates:

 

Creativity & Inspiration –

We aim to offer an inviting arts space that encourages creative exploration and learning. This will be a venue where individuals can both gain inspiration and entertain others, nurturing a vibrant arts culture within Winchcombe.

 

Youth Empowerment –

Recognising the importance of investing in our future, WACH will provide a safe and welcoming indoor space for our local youth. Through a variety of activities, we strive to support them in achieving their full potential and becoming active contributors to our community.

 

Community Engagement –

As a central hub for Winchcombe, our goal is to host a range of community-led events and activities. This space will be a melting pot of ideas, collaborations, and shared experiences, reinforcing our community bonds.

Join WACH and Brodie Planning on this exciting journey as as the Church is re-envisioned and re-purposed into a thriving hub for the arts and community in Winchcombe.

Conversion of Former Chapel to Dwellinghouse in Stroud

Conversion of Former Chapel to Dwellinghouse in Stroud

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!

Grade II listed Cottage Greenhouse, Poulton

Grade II listed Cottage Greenhouse, Poulton

Grade II listed Cottage Greenhouse, Poulton

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 Doctors Surgery to Residential Dwelling

Location: Doctors Surgery, Stow-on-the-Wold, Cheltenham

Case Type: Change of use from D1 to C3

Council: Cotswold District Council

Status: Approved

Planning permission has been granted for external alterations to facilitate the conversion of a former doctors surgery to a residential dwelling. 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.
