Having won the original design competition the scheme was then altered dramatically after receiving comments from English Heritage, the Victorian Society, The Society for the Preservation of Ancient Buildings and the local diocess. Alterations to some ecclesiastical buildings do not require listed building consent, but instead require diocessan consent, which is obtained in a similar way by producing the required work for presentation to fully describe the final proposed design.
Once diocesan approval is granted there is then a requirement to apply for planning consent. We were fortunate to have an excellent client base that displayed the proposed design in the church and had a number of local meetings to ensure that local public opinion was in favour of the scheme.
The model is made of different thicknesses of balsa wood, card, wire and sponge.
