Trio of Planning Approvals!

Matthew Montague Architects are delighted to have received a trio of planning approvals this week! The projects all fall within the East Midlands area spanning three planning authorities.

The approvals consist of an industrial development in Mansfield, replacement of two agricultural Dutch barns with two new dwellings in a conservation area in North West Leicestershire and a Meditation Centre at Ashe Hall Buddhist Centre in Etwall.

Planning permission has been secured for a small industrial development in the centre of Mansfield. The existing buildings will be demolished and three modern, efficient buildings with sustainable energy sources will be built. The existing business will relocate into a purpose-built new building on the site and the two further units will be available for lease.

Secondly, two new modern contemporary dwellings have been approved by North West Leicestershire for the replacement of two agricultural Dutch barns in the village of Breedon on the Hill. Repurposing of an existing brownfield site, the houses have been designed in a contemporary yet contextually appropriate style influenced by the historical barn.

Construction will start on site early 2024 of these two four bedroomed properties. Local materials will be used as far as possible in construction, with natural stone being a dominant material, with stone coloured render and large expanses of glazing to make the most of the amazing views.

Finally, South Derbyshire District Council has granted planning approval for a new meditation hall at the Grade II listed Ashe Hall in Etwall on behalf of the Tara International Kadampa Retreat Centre.

The new meditation hall will be a simple, light airy building that can be opened up to the stunning surrounding landscape. The venue will be used for Buddhist gatherings and celebrations and will welcome people from across the world. This is the only facility of its kind in the UK, a fantastic project for the practice. Construction is expected to begin early 2024.
