Planning permission homes vintage vehicles

Vintage vehicles

Planning & Design Practice Ltd are pleased to announce that planning permission has been secured for the construction of an outbuilding in North East Derbyshire. The building will act as ancillary residential accommodation to the existing dwelling and will primarily provide a storage area for the client to store vintage vehicles.

In line with our clients brief the Architectural Team, in collaboration with the Planning Team, prepared a scheme that would sit comfortably within the curtilage of the existing dwelling and not have an overbearing presence on local area. The scheme took into consideration the potential impact on the character of the area and the amenity of the neighbours. These considerations informed the final scheme.

The proposed building contained a vehicle storage area, home office, gym and a workshop and will be steel framed, with timber and brick cladding and a sheet metal roof.

The Planning system supports the construction of outbuildings and ancillary accommodation by householders where the buildings are used in conjunction with the enjoyment of the dwellinghouse. The General Permitted Development Order 2015, as amended, allows residents to cover up to half the garden in outbuildings without planning permission but subject to height limitations. The application for planning permission was required because of the proposed height and the proximity to the boundary.

Planning & Design Practice Ltd is a multi-disciplinary team of Chartered Town Planners, Architects, Architectural Assistants and Heritage Specialists. Gaining planning permission is a key step in almost any development. We can take a project through from inception to completion, but we also offer the flexibility to engage a client’s own architects and provide a planning service, whilst our design team can also work with clients who have engaged other town planning professionals.

Planning & Design Practice Ltd are well versed in researching and understanding local Council’s policies to ensure the best possible case if put forward for our clients.
