IT’S ALL ABOUT THE DETAIL
As we are situated in the heart of southern England we also get involved with small agricultural & equestrian buildings, some of which only require a separate Agricultural Certificate instead of planning permission depending on the size.
Some material planning considerations to factor into a design can include the following:
-Scale and appearance
-Effect on neighbouring properties- loss of light / overlooking
-Impact on a listed building, listed building setting and/or conservation area
-Access, parking and highway safety
In some cases, it will be necessary to supply a Design and Access Statement, & in the case of Listed Buildings a Heritage Statement as well to support an application this will detail design features and provide justification. The level of detail will depend on the scale of the application.
At Hungerford Design, we are experienced with handling planning applications and have detailed knowledge of relevant planning policies.
If you are unsure if your project requires planning permission, please get in touch. We offer free initial advice and would be happy to help.
