Leckhampton Car Port

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.

Mezzanine Pod Ancillary Building in Cheltenham

Mezzanine Pod Ancillary Building in Cheltenham

Mezzanine Pod 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.

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

Due to the quirky design of the mezzanine 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.

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!
