Having received support from the local council at the pre-application stage, the application did not require amendment and was granted planning and listed building consent on the 28th December 2014.
“The proposed pool house is of modest scale and complementary design, and discretely located some distance from the principal listed building, where it nestles comfortably in the graded topography of the site. It is also well removed from the associated listed structures within the curtilage of Paxhill. The new building will result in no harm to either the historic significance of the adjacent listed buildings or the visual quality of the landscaped setting and in consequence, the proposal is likely to be supported in terms of Local Plan Policy B10.“
