Holiday lets in AONB
The buildings, once piggeries, were derelict and the roofs had collapsed. Yet having approached their local council on numerous occasions with pre-application enquiries, the client had been strongly discouraged from applying for permission. This inability to regenerate the land was having a profound effect on its value, despite being in such a beautiful location and in a prominent hillside position.
After negotiations regarding landscaping works and minor amendments that would help to screen the holiday lets, the council accepted that the regeneration scheme would deliver economic, social and environmental benefits, all of which contribute towards the Government’s definition of ‘sustainable development’.
