DLP Planning Ltd (DLP) have secured planning consent for the change of use of a ground floor office and first floor flat to a health clinic practice in Marlow, High Wycombe (The Council). This was a project undertaken in conjunction with be1 Architects Ltd who provided the detailed plans for the internal alterations and advertisement consent.
The scheme involved alterations to a Grade II Listed Building including the conversion of the first floor flat and ground floor office to provide a state of the art health clinic. DLP provided a robust planning argument for the justification of the loss of the residential and office use by highlighting the benefits of the introduction of a D1 community use onto the High Street. We also highlighted the benefits to the heritage asset through the renovation of the listed building including sympathetic signage, demonstrating a viable use of the asset whilst conserving the fabric of the building.
The proposal will see the re-location of an existing business providing a health and aesthetic clinic for the treatment of disease and disorder into the sustainable location of the high street where the wider community can better access its services.
