DLP Planning Ltd (DLP) are delighted to have obtained full planning permission for 1 new dwelling within the curtilage of a listed building in the South Gloucestershire countryside. The site forms part of the residential curtilage of the Grade II listed Talbot’s End House in Cromhall and is located outside of the defined settlement boundary.
South Gloucestershire Council is currently unable to demonstrate a five year housing land supply. In this situation applications should be considered in the context of the presumption in favour of sustainable development and permission should be granted unless any adverse impacts of doing so would significantly and demonstrably outweigh the benefits
Working with James Slater & Co on behalf of a private client, DLP were able to successfully demonstrate that the site was indeed in a sustainable location due to the close proximity of the village of Cromhall and its associated facilities.
The Listed Building Officer concluded that although the new dwelling would have an impact on the existing setting of the listed building, it was not considered to be harmful and so the setting of the heritage asset would be preserved. The Case Officer commended the design of the dwelling, describing it as “an attractive composition of traditional forms executed with a modern influence.”
The application received no objections and was approved by the Council on the 13th December.
