DLP Planning Ltd (DLP) in conjunction with be1 Architects Ltd and Cass Allen Associates Ltd has successfully secured planning permission for a detached family home in Carlton, Bedford.
We were instructed to review a previous application for the site that had been refused on the grounds of noise from the adjacent farmyard.
DLP undertook early pre-application discussions with the local planning authority regarding the principle of development, the impact on the listed building and the noise source on the adjoining agricultural farmyard.
We successfully redesigned the layout to mitigate against the noise impact and was able to remove the previous objection in relation to noise.
A revised scheme was subsequently submitted along with further highways and landscape benefits to the Conservation Area including the creation of a new shared access closing off the existing substandard driveway. This application was fully supported by Council Officers and received approval by Members at planning committee.
The four bedroom detached home will comprise a simple traditional design and set back from the Listed Building to enable the heritage asset to remain the dominant feature within the streetscene.
