COMMERCIAL PLANNING PROJECTS
A few examples of planning projects we've worked on within the commercial sector.
PLANNING PERMISSION GRANTED AT MANSELL RACEWAY
Maria Bailey Planning was responsible for planning permission being granted for the development of a purpose built structure at Mansell Raceway. The building will incorporate a new reception, offices, toilets and showers, briefing room, viewing area, race control, workshop and storage area. It is trusted that the new building will significantly improve the overall setting of the site and will provide the business with an improved professional stance.
RURAL ENTERPRISE DWELLING
We secured planning permission subject to the signing of a Section 106 for a rural enterprise dwelling in Ashwater.
Similarly to an agricultural workers dwelling, the applicants needed to demonstrate the essential need for a key worker to live on site.
The application received plenty of local support and was approved at Planning Committee on 7th July. This enables the applicants to live on site with their family and focus on the growth and success of the Agriculture and Plant Hire business.
AGRICULTURAL BUILDING TO RESIDENTIAL DWELLING
At a site located between St Giles on Heath and Launceston, we had a recent success at appeal, for a Change of Use of an agricultural building and land within its curtilage to two semi-detached dwellings of equal portion and dimensions under Part 3, Class Q. (a) of the Order.
By addressing all the points outlined in the legalisation for the application, the Inspectorate concluded, “With reference to the limitations set down by paragraph Q.1. of Class Q of Part 3 to Schedule 2 of the GPDO, insofar as these apply to permitted development under Class Q (a), I am satisfied that the proposal meets the requirements for the change of use of the building, and the proposed curtilage, from agriculture to two dwelling houses.”
We are particularly pleased with the outcome of this application after reading that Torridge District Council (TDC) advised Planning Resource magazine that, "in the early days of the right, the council had a high refusal rate.”
