DLP Planning Ltd’s Bristol office have successfully secured full planning permission for two detached self-build dwellings in the village of Rangeworthy, South Gloucestershire.
Working with both GSH Architects and Matrix Transport and Infrastructure Consultants Ltd, this self-build project includes the demolition of the existing property in order to facilitate the construction of two dwellings (one 3-bed and one 5-bed). This will allow the existing occupant to downsize whilst staying within the village and will enable younger relatives to build a family home on the site, to offer future support if necessary.
Access was an integral issue to overcome considering a past refusal on this site on highways grounds. The property is located on a relatively busy adopted highway and the Council’s Highways Officer was specifically concerned with the safety of the access and appropriate visibility splays. The application included a relocated access and required speed surveys to be undertaken by Matrix during the application process. This satisfactorily dealt with the Officer’s original concerns and enabled the scheme to be granted permission.
