JB Planning Associates has successfully secured planning permission and listed building consent for the conversion and extension of a redundant estate building into a dwellinghouse.
The building had formerly been used as a wood barn as part of the North Mymms Park Estate, a Grade I listed mansion, formerly the centre of an estate covering 700 acres of park and farm land.
JB Planning Associates, in conjunction with the project team which included the renowned architecture practice Skene Catling De La Peña, had previously secured planning permission for the building’s conversion and extensions. The recent applications have allowed a further addition and alterations which allow the proposal to be elevated from being a thoughtful conversion to a fully resolved piece of architecture.
As part of the application, JB Planning Associates were able to convince the Council’s Built Heritage Consultant that the proposed amendments would result in no additional impact on the architectural or historic interest of the building. It was also demonstrated to the Council that the proposal would enable the long-term retention of the heritage asset and would be acceptable in Green Belt terms.< back
