Planning Permission for Barn Conversion Scheme for Two New Dwellings.
Planning Permission has been granted for two new dwellings in the small rural village of Callow situated approximately 2 miles from the village of Wirksworth in Derbyshire.
The agricultural barn that forms part of the nearby Paddock Farm was granted planning permission in January 2019 for conversion to two houses under Class Q regulation. Our client purchased the site with extant planning permission in 2021.
On both occasions JMI Town Planning Consultants gained the planning permission. The new scheme is approved under a full planning application not Class Q.
The brief from our client was to deliver an improved scheme. Architect, Paul McLocklin redesigned the dwellings, amended internal layouts and developed a modern design with a focus on glazing to maximise the stunning views.
The new homes celebrate the countryside, respecting the character and appearance of the existing whilst creating contemporary, unique places to live designed to meet modern day living requirements.
Dwelling one will have three bedrooms one en-suite, utility room, boot room, open plan living and spiral stairway leading to a mezzanine studio space. The second dwelling being slightly smaller will comprise two bedrooms, utility, open plan living area and bathroom and cloakroom.
The new dwellings will be a blend of blockwork construction with timber cladding and seam profile sheet roofs.
The project is an equal blend of retaining and respecting the agricultural history of the setting and building with modern architectural design, which helps it to blend into its surroundings.
Construction is expected to commence late Spring 2022.
