We are excited to report that design proposals for this self build located in the Greenbelt allowed at appeal after a long drawn out planning process. Numerous applications were prepared and submitted in a staged approach which included a certificate of lawfulness for permitted development and its implementation on site. After refusal of an application for a replacement dwelling an appeal was lodged to the Planning Inspectorate and allowed. The outcome meant that the existing modest 1,000ft² bungalow can now be replaced with a large 4,000ft² two storey individually designed property. It was a high risk strategy involving a loophole in permitted development that ultimately allowed the Client to secure consent for a large luxury replacement dwelling. A great example to any aspiring self builder on how to explore every possible opportunity!
We revisited this new build project in Guildford recently and were delighted with the final results. The house sits perfectly in its plot and is a great example of a successful replacement dwelling in the greenbelt - no mean feat in Guildford!
This contemporary new build project in Guildford is nearing completion and we are really pleased with how its coming together. We will be adding full details to the website as soon as its ready.
We are delighted to report that our design for a replacement dwelling in the Greenbelt has been granted planning permission in Guildford. It can be a challenge to secure permission on land in the Greenbelt, where there are often strict floor space restrictions. Fortunately the site was already occupied by a 2 storey house with a floor area of 3,500ft². The proposed design secured a 40% increase and also relocated the building on the plot so that the orientation responded to the shape of the site and the orientation to generate a better internal environment.
Construction has already commenced and will be completed later this year and further details will be available on the website soon.
