Our client approached us with a view to converting a Listed Chapel into a dwelling. This was a delicate development because not only was the building Listed but the site was very small with little room to manoeuvre with regard to extensions. Dialogue then ensued with the LPA's Conservation Officer and agreement was reached, with the the assistance of the architectural designers on what could be achieved within the confines of the site. Applications were then submitted for planning consent and Listed Building approval, which were favourably obtained following the pre-application discussions and further changes during the course of the handling of the application. a successful conclusion to a potentially difficult and sensitive development.
