Beedon, West Berkshire

We  received, on appeal, planning approval for the replacement of a series of agricultural barns with three new build homes in Beedon, West Berkshire.

The scheme proposes a contemporary barn-style development which looked to reflect the historic pattern of development on the site whilst using a more contemporary vernacular. The new dwellings will replace a number of unattractive, dilapidated and redundant 20th century agricultural sheds improving both the character of the site and the village. Having been refused permission by West Berkshire Council we appealed the scheme and despite the conflict with the development plan, the Inspector gave considerable weight to the scheme’s enhancement to the landscape character in the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and the setting of nearby heritage assets.

We are really pleased with the outcome for our clients and look forward to seeing the scheme being built out.
