Planning & Design Practice Ltd is pleased to announce that planning permission has been secured for erection of two B8 (Storage and distribution) and E(g)(iii) (Industrial Processes) buildings in Derbyshire Dales. The buildings would be subdivided into nine individual units, and will provide a significant boost to rural employment opportunities.

In line with our clients brief the Architectural Team in collaboration with the Planning Team at Planning and Design Practice prepared a sensitive scheme that would make efficient use of land in terms of maximising the number and size of unit’s deliverable on site, whilst minimising the potential impacts on the countryside and the setting of the a nearby Conservation Area.

It was successfully argued that the redevelopment of the site for new build B8 (Storage and distribution) and E(g)(iii) (Industrial Processes) units would be an appropriate form of employment development within the defined countryside as it would represent an opportunity to create much needed rural employment opportunities within the area. The development will support the local economy by providing a range of fit for purpose modern commercial units for local residents within the area which will in turn contribute towards the creation and retention of rural employment opportunities.
