JB Planning Associates has successfully secured planning and listed building consent to convert part of a Grade II* listed building back to residential use.
Chells Manor was originally constructed as a high-status manor house and dates from the 14th Century. It was converted to office use in the 1980s. The approved scheme allows for part of the building to be converted back to residential use involving non-intrusive works to the original fabric of the building and with no discernible external alterations.
JB Planning Associates and the appointed Heritage Consultant were able to demonstrate that the proposals had been thoughtfully developed. The project was based on a thorough understanding of the significance of the listed building to ensure preservation of its architectural and historic interest. The Council’s Built Heritage Consultant also supported the proposal, concluding that the works would maintain the significance of the listed building.
JB Planning Associates demonstrated that the proposal would provide for a good level of amenity for future residential occupiers alongside the retained office use within the remainder of the listed building.< back
