Leckhampton Car Port

Planning Permission Secured!

This week we are delighted to announce the approval of a contemporary detached carport in Leckhampton on a site recently released from the Greenbelt following the adoption of the Tewkesbury Local Plan.

Designed for both practicality and aesthetics. The carport features open sides for effortless access to vehicles and is complemented by an enclosed area for secure storage of bicycles, bins, and various other outdoor equipment.

What truly sets this project apart is the striking design that seamlessly integrates with both the host dwelling and its surroundings. The design is a contemporary approach with vertical timber cladding and a natural Cotswold stone plinth.

Whether you’re navigating the intricacies of Green Belt regulations, contemplating a carport or garage project, or have any planning and design inquiries, we’re here to assist you every step of the way. Don’t hesitate to get in touch to discuss your vision, explore your options, and embark on a journey toward turning aspirations into reality.

Ashfield Tanworth-in-Arden

Ashfield
Tanworth-in-Arden

BPA are thrilled to announce that we have successfully secured planning permission for the construction of a single storey side and rear extension to a two-storey, detached dwelling in Tanworth-in Arden.

The proposed development will transform and enhance the living space at Ashfield, by providing a larger open-plan kitchen diner with living area to the rear, and a separate utility room to the side.

The materials chosen for the extension will seamlessly blend with the existing structure, including red brick external walls that echo the current façade and clay roof tiles on the mock-pitched roof at the front of the side extension.

While cherishing the traditional, we’re also introducing modern innovations. The flat roof element at the rear of the property will be covered with a single ply membrane, ensuring durability and protection for the new space.

We can’t wait to see this project transform Ashfield into a comfortable, modern space for the applicants, so stay tuned for updates as this project is brought to life! The before and after plans below show how we imagine Ashfield to look once all works have been completed – check it out!

Merry Lane Dog Paddock, Evesham

Merry Lane Dog Paddock, Evesham

Merry Lane Dog Paddock,

Evesham

Location: Merry Lane, Evesham, Worcestershire

Case Type: Change of use from equestrian land to a dog exercising paddock with ancillary facilities and associated parking (part retrospective) 

Council: Wychavon District Council

Status: Planning permission secured

BPA has secured planning permission for the change of use of an equestrian field to a dog exercise paddock with ancillary facilities and associated works.

In April, 2021, the applicants began renting the paddock to owners who required a secure area for exercising their dogs off-lead. There was evidently a demand in the locality, as the applicants had a number of regular users and therefore wished to secure retrospective planning permission to ensure the use is lawful. The paddock can now be utilised by owners and dogs who may not want to mix with others, have special requirements, or limited access to safe green spaces. The applicant also sought permission for the retention of the shepherds hut sited in the paddock. The hut provides users with shelter from the elements in addition to tea/coffee facilities and a WC. The final element of the application sought permission for a new vehicular access point and hardstanding for the parking of 2no. cars and an associated turning area.

With the assistance of our expertise, we quickly and smoothly secured planning permission for the applicant supporting the continuation of their rural business.

Camp Gardens, Stow-on-the-Wold

BPA has secured full planning permission for 4no. high-quality detached dwellings in Stow-on-the-Wold.

Due to the sensitive nature of the site (Cotswold AONB and in close proximity to designated heritage assets) coupled with the sites complex and rather colourful planning history, we undertook pre-application discussions with the local authority. During which, we successfully established the principle of residential development on the whole of the site area, and sought to clarify from the council regarding the issues that needed to be addressed to secure a positive determination. The result is a cleverly designed scheme, incorporating features typical of the Cotswold vernacular with a contemporary twist.

Through our strong planning submission and positive engagement with the case officer, the application was approved under delegated authority.

Location: Stow-on-the-Wold

Case Type: Full Planning Application

Description: Construction of 4no detached dwellings
Council: Cotswold

Status: Approved and Under Construction

Upper Oddington, Moreton-In-Marsh, Gloucestershire

Location: Upper Oddington, Moreton-In-Marsh, Gloucestershire

Case Type: Change of use of an ancillary building to an independent dwellinghouse

Council: Cotswold District Council

Status: Appeal allowed & full costs award

BPA has secured planning permission on appeal, along with a full costs award.

Despite the advice of professional officers, the Council refused the application at planning committee due to the effect of the proposal on the character and appearance of the area.
BPA successfully argued that as the external appearance of the building would remain exactly the same as an extant planning permission, the reason for refusal could not be substantiated. The Inspector agreed and found the building to be of a high-quality design respecting the character and appearance of the locality. Accordingly, the Inspector found no conflict with the adopted Local Plan or Cotswold Design Code.

In addition to allowing the appeal, the Inspector held that the Council provided little evidence as to why it felt the development was considered to be of an inappropriate design. Consequently, the refusal of planning permission constituted unreasonable behaviour and the Council were ordered to pay the applicant’s full costs in the appeal proceedings.
