Cambridgeshire Barn

Full concept, design and planning service for private clients resulted in this classically proportioned black timber boarded linear barn.

We secured an interesting planning permission on this project whereby we actually gained permission for two dwellings following the demolition of a single dwelling. The plot is located within a designated Conservation Area where normally only a one for one replacement is considered acceptable by the local planning authority (LPA)

Through our pre-application concept work with the LPA, we were able to demonstrate how the scheme could work better with two dwellings. The overall concept for the site was to present it with a main farmhouse design (case study to follow soon) and for this barn to be located alongside. The application was approved upon first submission without the need to go to full committee.

The project incorporated a full oak frame from T J Crump Oakwrights Ltd and was self managed by the clients.
