Planning Design has secured consent at appeal for a contemporary new house on the edge of the attractive rural village of Kirk Ireton in the Derbyshire Dales.
The Council rejected the proposals on the grounds of an adverse impact upon the Kirk Ireton Conservation Area, despite the site being set in the context of 1960s buildings on the edge of the village, and despite the Council’s own Conservation Officer supporting the application.
At appeal, Planning Design successfully argued that the surrounding properties on the edge of the village were not reflective of the character of the conservation area as a whole, and that new development here need not replicate them. The Planning Inspector agreed, stating that“although of a more contemporary design than the neighbouring properties, I conclude that the proposed development would preserve the character and appearance of the Conservation Area.”
Some 3D visuals of the proposed new dwelling are provided below. We are finding that such an approach is becoming an increasingly valuable tool in ‘bringing a proposal to life’, both for clients and for third parties seeking to understand it.
