Listed Building in Keevil, Wiltshire
DPDS were commissioned to secure Listed Building Consent and Full Planning permission for the redevelopment of a Grade II listed property, which sits within a Conservation Area.
The set of three cottages, which are prominent within the street scene and had been vacant for some time, were generally in a very poor state of repair. The proposals involved the refurbishment, and erection of a rear extension to enable them to become modern homes.
DPDS produced a Heritage Statement in support of the application, demonstrating that the proposals complied with the relevant local planning policies, preserving the special architectural and historic interest of the building.
Listed Building Consent and Full Planning permission was achieved through DPDS’ long and full project management which included;
- Initiating, sourcing and managing external experts in heritage and ecology;
- Providing pragmatic advice in relation to the significance of the historic building, and ensuring that proposals represented the optimum viable use of the heritage asset.
- Coordination between our in-house planners and architects to design a sympathetic extension, and reconfigure the internal layout without harming the significance of the listed building;
- Negotiating with the Council on various design aspects that were of a concern.
