Residential Developments

NEWGATE FOLD, Holmfirth

Client:

R.A. BERRY & SON LTD

The brief:

To achieve planning permission for the development of 5 individually designed houses in a prominent position, within a conservation area.

Our approach:

Working collaboratively with our client we and the local planning authority secured planning permission for 5 large detached dwellings on derelict land in a conservation area on the edge of green belt. Each dwelling individually designed.

Having built the first three dwellings, the recession hit and it became apparent that the remaining houses close to the site entrance weren’t going to be as easy to sell. As a result, we resubmitted plans for the redesign of the entrance area – replacing the original two large dwellings, with five smaller, more sustainable houses (a pair of semis and a cluster of three townhouses) – the site will now accommodated eight houses in total.

Services included: Design, planning, building regulation approval, discharge of planning conditions, negotiations with funder and some on-site assistance.

The result:

Completion of Phase 1: Three stunning houses, which have been built and occupied. Phase 2 – on-going, with added value.
