Workshop to house

Approval has now been granted for the conversion of a timber-framed workshop into a detached residence. Following the refusal of the initial application by the council on the grounds that the building was not considered to be located within a sustainable location, Bloomfields persuaded the Planning Inspector that this was not appropriate grounds for refusal.

In allowing this appeal, the Inspector agreed with our recommendation that the sustainability of the location should not be taken into consideration. We now hope to work with this particular council to ensure similar applications are considered reasonably.
