Case Study - House Approval in Village Conservation Area

House Approval in Village Conservation Area

JWPC has successfully secured planning permission from East Riding of Yorkshire Council for a large single dwelling set within formal gardens on land on the edge of a popular East Riding village. The land falls outside the identified settlement boundary in overgrown gardens. In planning policy terms it falls within an 'open countryside' designation within the Local Plan and thus, a compelling planning argument was needed to secure a planning permission in the face of a policy of constraint. With support from landscape architects and the project architects, JWPC was able to demonstrate that the 6 bedroom dwelling of over 1000m2 of floorspace could be sensitively assimilated into the village environment and its Conservation Area and that exception circumstances existed to justify an
approval.

JWPC were commissioned following two previously unsuccessful planning application for similar proposals on the site and through a carefully conceived package of drawings and supporting statements as well as negotiations with the Council's officers, a favourable recommendation was presented to Committee and the application approved. The scheme was commended by Council officers who states:

"The proposed formal gardens area in front of the dwelling would form a massive enhancement to the character and appearance of the site area. The dwelling has been well designed and has interest as a bespoke 'one off' modernist dwelling, which would add to the built stock of the conservation area, as an example of early 21st century design and innovation."
