A bit of a first here for us at Hayston Developments & Planning Ltd, as we like to think of this as our first appeal win in England. An application was made to Cotswold District Council to create a lean-to, stairs to the rear of the property, and to replace doors and windows. This was refused in June 2015.
Whilst we did not attend the hearing, we provided all of the planning drawings for the project, and assisted with the conservation statements. On this particular project, we worked in conjunction with Mr Hilton Marlton of Hilton Marlton Design. The Inspector agreed with our argument that the proposal would not harm the Grade II listed building, nor would it damage the heritage interest of an adjoining building. The Inspector also concluded that the proposal would preserve the character and appearance of the Conservation Area in which the properties are situated.
