Working alongside local Planning Consultants Spruce Architecture were instructed to prepare visuals for this pair of replacement dwellings on the site of an existing commercial property. The owner of the business had been exploring their options for the site and this design was one potential direction.
This project involved visiting the site to take photographs, paying particular attention to the neighbouring properties and the site levels. The proposal needed to go through the Pre-Application process which allows clients and consultants to get guidance from the Local Authority without the risk and potentially great costs associated with submitting a full planning application that may end up being denied.
We were able to fit two dwellings on the site comfortably, which would have led to a general improvement on the outlook.
This project is on hold for the short term, it falls within a zone surrounding the Ashdown Forest, which is currently subject to development restrictions.
