Planning Permission Secured for Period Property.

Matthew Montague Architects are pleased to have secured planning permission from East Staffordshire Borough Council for contemporary extensions to a period property set in 30 acres of land in Croxden, Staffordshire for a private client.

Following discussions with planning officer, several changes to the original design were agreed to secure approval. After an extension of time a contemporary approach was approved to connect, reconfigure and extend some of the existing spaces.

The extension would infill an existing patio area to the side of the dwelling to form a part single storey and part two glazed link extension, providing an access to the proposed gym and existing bedroom at first floor level, and an open plan dining and sitting area at ground floor level. The two storey rear element would replace an existing large conservatory and would provide a cinema and games room at ground floor level with gym above; two balconies are proposed within this element one facing to the north on the rear elevation and one facing to the east on the side elevation.

The lightweight glass and timber design abuts the existing traditional house to create a modern extension that now provides a strong connection with the external space and idyllic vistas.

As a result of negotiations that have taken place during the application process the scale of the side extension has been reduced in height and glazed to give a more lightweight appearance.

Original Proposal submitted for planning:

Amended design following negotiations with planners:
