Planning & Design Practice have secured planning permission for the replacement of an existing barn with a new dwelling in the Kirk Langley conservation area.
Kirk Langley is a village a few miles northwest of Derby. Back in 2017 a scheme was approved to replace a steel framed barn with a high-quality, contemporary new dwelling on the exact same footprint. The client then sought to make some changes to the approved scheme, the most significant of which was the addition of a basement level to the building.
The impact of the development on heritage assets was a key consideration as the site is located in a conservation area and in close proximity to a listed building. The council agreed that the high quality design of the building meant that it would not materially harm the significance of these heritage assets.
We look forward to seeing the building take shape in due course.
