Billesley Farm – Independant Dwelling

Green Belt permission for new independent dwelling granted in Bromsgrove!

Case Type: Full Planning Application
LPA: Bromsgrove District Council
Case Reference:
Status: Approved

The property included an outbuilding which was erected without planning permission. From the initial construction of the outbuilding it followed a complicated and rocky planning path, which included an Enforcement Notice and a subsequent Enforcement Appeal.

The Inspector allowed the Enforcement Appeal for the outbuilding, but only subject to a legal agreement which required the outbuilding to be occupied as ancillary accommodation to the main property. The reason for the legal agreement being the site’s location in the green belt and open countryside, typically where new dwellings are not supported.

In reviewing the complicated site history Brodie Planning Associates suggested a planning strategy to the client. We subsequently submitted a planning application for the outbuilding to be occupied as a separate new dwelling with its own garden area, access and parking.

We are delighted to have now secured permission for the client, and to have helped provide a smoother path to the delivery of a positive determination by the LPA.

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.

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!
