DLP (Planning) Ltd (DLP) are pleased to have secured retrospective planning permission for excavation works to facilitate a larger drainage system to serve the Grade II Listed Strafford Arms, a public house located within the Grade 1 listed parkland of Wentworth Castle at Stainborough.
DLP were instructed to submit an application for the works already undertaken after our client was informed that planning permission would be required, and advised to stop work until permission had been obtained. DLP liaised with the local planning authority’s Conservation Officer and project managed the submission of the necessary information which included the relevant drawings, a Heritage and Archaeology Assessment, and a Tree report in support of the application.
The public house has become a popular eatery and with it has increased the need for larger and improved drainage upgraded systems. DLP successfully put forward a case which highlighted the importance of supporting the future business of the pub and ensuring the ongoing maintenance of a listed building, and successfully secured permission from Barnsley Council within our client’s timescales.
