Planning Design were able to use the Planning system an imaginative way to help fund repairs to Grade II* Listed Willersley Castle, the former home of Arkwright family in the heart of the Derwent Valley World Heritage Site.
Working closely with owners The Christian Guild, we secured consent for the change of use of the Grade II Listed Derwent House (a former farmhouse in the grounds of the Castle used for office accommodation in recent decades) to a dwelling, and the conversion of a former stable block adjacent to the Castle to provide alternative office accommodation.
The purpose of the scheme was to allow Derwent House to be sold to raise the funds needed for a complete overhaul of the 200 year old Willersley Castle roof.
