DLP Planning Ltd (DLP) in conjunction with be1 Architects Ltd have successfully secured full planning permission for a detached family home in Greenfield, Central Bedfordshire.
The application was subject to constructive early engagement regarding the principle of development through the Local Planning Authority’s formal pre-application process. However, the scheme initially encountered resistance from the Council’s Conservation and Tree Officer and an initial application was withdrawn to enable further discussions regarding the siting, scale and design of the building.
A revised scheme was subsequently re-submitted along with further detailed justification presented by DLP. This application was fully supported by Council Officers and received unanimous approval by Members at planning committee.
The 3-bedroom detached home will comprise a simple contemporary design, set back from the adjacent C17 thatched cottage, enabling the heritage asset to be the predominant feature within the street scene.
Following the granting of planning permission, the new property will enable additional funding to be secured to allow for the renovation and ongoing maintenance and upkeep of the adjacent Listed Building.
