Being a Grade II Listed property, set within a Conservation Area and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, all modifications to the building required both Planning Approval and Listed Building Consent. This posed a significant challenge regarding the design approach, the use of new materials and the removal of any historic building fabric. All changes to the property needed careful consideration and justification to the local planning & conservation authorities before approval was granted. A detailed heritage statement and separate historic report was required on the property, to provide evidence of the age and significance of the single-storey extension to be demolished, undertaken by a specialist building historian.
Through the effective collaboration of Nest and our partnered consultants, we obtained full consent to modify this highly protected property, and provide our clients with a generous new extension. Working to a high standard and providing the local authorities with all the information they required, meant we were able to navigate this process with great success.
