Our client had purchased a building used formerly as offices on the High Street in Llangefni. His intentions were to convert the building into a shop on the ground floor along with 3 flats above. Owen Devenport prepared a report which reinforced the proposal and submitted an application to the Local Planning Authority. The application was dealt with in a timely manner and was quickly approved. Our client was happy with the results and can now start work implementing his permission, with the shop quickly let showing a demand for retail floor space in Llangefni Town Centre.
Our client owned of a piece of land situated at Newborough, Anglesey. He approached us with the intention of erecting three new residential dwellings on the land which was in fact the garden area of a property he owned in the village. As the dwellings proposed were to be set adjacent to other properties the design was a crucial element of the application. BR Architecture were instructed and after much discussion with the Local Planning Authority and final amendments to the submission we were keen to receive the sought for permission. It finally arrived and the client was delighted to receive his permission and is now set to start work on site.
News scoop! Permission granted to modify an old bank premises into a feel-good ice-cream parlour and shop with flat above at Abersoch. Summer’s never looked so bright, surely a delight for all ice-cream lovers! Our client was absolutely thrilled with his approval granted at Planning Committee and can now begin work on site. The building was a former Bank in the centre of the village and permission was sought for a change of use into a shop and ice cream parlour. The plans, prepared by BHB Architects, saw a tasteful conversion of this disused building and now it will be put to good use, bringing more summer cheer to the visitors at this popular tourist destination.
We were approached by our client who was the owner of a static caravan at Mold in Flintshire. This caravan had a long history of having been used as a dwelling without permission. Our client had collected a profusion of evidence which solidified this use and therefore he intended to apply for a Lawful Use Certificate in order to continue with its use lawfully. Owen Devenport were duly instructed and prepared a report which emphasised this evidence and were asked to submit the application to the Local Planning Authority. We were finally pleased to let our client know that their submission had been approved as Lawful and they may now continue with the use undisturbed.
Recently acquired permission to give ‘love and life’ back into a former retired care home, reenergizing the building into the perfect accommodation for the busy working life of students. The site and building itself was deemed the perfect place for (much needed) student accommodation as it was originally designed and used to house the elderly, standing just opposite the BBC in Meirion Road, Bangor, creating the ideal accommodation for students with close access to all facilities. What better place to give Fresher’s a taste of their new student life, in the heart of the City. Although there were numerous local objections, Owen Devenport put the case forward forcefully, and after much consideration from the Local Planning Authority the application was given the green light by the Planning Committee so allowing our client to begin work on his new project.
