Cotterlings achieved planning permission on the 10th of March 2016.
Gaining Planning and Listed Building consent cannot be guaranteed. Whether you are looking for tradition or innovation, boldness or understatement, we can lift your project out of the ordinary. Anyone can alter a building. It takes an expert to do it with flair, imagination and style. Where an historic or old building is concerned, special expertise is required to ensure that the work benefits its character, fabric and value. Historic buildings and their settings are unique and irreplaceable assets. Aware owners and managers who look after them properly enrich themselves as well as their Nation. Our success is founded on professional training, qualification and experience; sound knowledge of techniques, policies and strategies; good judgement of people; the ability to design and nurture enduring solutions.
Cotterlings achieved Planning after lengthy negotiation with the local District Council. By producing an incredibly detailed 3D model of the beautiful 11* listed building, numerous detailed sectional drawings and submitting a detailed 100 page Conservation Document/Historic Building Appraisal, all of which provided justification for the removal of parts and/or additions to the building; we increased the chances of receiving consent through a scholarly approach.
Approval was received without detriment to the required increase in floor area. Our record of success is built on sensitivity, quality of execution and avoiding long, costly, uncertain confrontation. We deal with planning authorites from strength and knowledge, extensive experience of their culture and understanding how particular policies impact on the project. DD Architects does not have a ‘house style.’ We seek harmony with an area’s special character, whether in authentic period or modern form.
Here at DD architects, we have a knack for gauging when a design might hit a snag or not quite make the cut, so we lean towards giving each scheme we work up every advantage possible to enable a positive result.
