REEDLING PLANNING & CONSERVATION SERVICES
We can advise on all types of work and applications to Listed Buildings, or Conservation Area Consent.
Listed Building Consent is required for works undertaken on a Listed Building; this includes extensions to buildings, replacement windows and doors and alterations to the interior fabric.
Usually the work undertaken will need prior approval and then a schedule of works detailing the precise colours and materials to be used. We can advise and guide you through this process considering both our client and the Conservation Officers requests and opinions.
In Conservation Areas, we can advise on the best design criteria to enhance the Conservation Area in which your building is situated whether Residential or Commercial.
Special planning controls protect the character of a Conservation Area. This includes work undertaken on trees.
Conservation Area Consent is required to demolish buildings and remove trees, especially when they enhance the area in which they are situated, we can advise if Conservation Area Consent is required and the best way of achieving this.
Conservation Area Consent or works to a Listed Building will require a Design & Access Statement. These can be carried out by our associate practice. These can be produced to accompany a range of planning applications. Works to convert former agricultural barns require a variety of reports (depending on Local Authority) but in each case a Design and Access Statement would be required.
We would approach the Conservation & Planning Officers to seek their views and to see if they are satisfied with a scheme prior to submitting to planning, often disagreements can be negotiated before submission; however, you can appeal a decision not allowing you to undertake work on a Listed Building or within a Conservation Area.
"Often solutions can be found to problems by using negotiation and imagination to ensure that the best possible scheme can be achieved"
