Chandlers Farm

Chandlers Farm


This proposal related to an old farm yard site near the centre of the attractive village of All Cannings. It consisted of two pleasant traditional brick buildings and other more modern utilitarian buildings. A historic planning application to convert the traditional buildings to dwellings and build a further new dwelling had previously been refused and subsequently dismissed on appeal.

RCC were asked to look at the options afresh having regard to the current local and national planning policy situation. We felt a strong case could now be made for the proposed conversions and the new build dwelling. An architect was appointed to undertake the necessary design work and an ecologist brought on board to undertake surveys and provide reports concerning protected species.



The comprehensive planning submission was made, which carefully addressed all the necessary issues. The application was successful and approved within the council’s normal timescales. Photographs of the existing buildings and extracts of the proposed drawings are shown.

Mr Askins, Wiltshire

Following work to the perimeter of our Grade II listed property we were informed by Wiltshire Council that we needed planning permission. We applied for retrospective planning permission and engaged RCC to advise us and take the process forward. Thanks to their professionalism, knowledge, expertise and persistence, having been initially objected to, RCC secured permission. We are in no doubt that without RCC we could not have secure a successful outcome.

Mr & Mrs Sealy,Melksham

Having bought the land and used it as an extension of our garden for well over 10 years without any concerns from neighbours or the council, we were quite shocked and upset to be facing a complaint earlier this year. With the welfare of our animals tied up in the success of the applications, the period was very stressful and emotional. Richard and Vicky led us through the process with great care and attention to detail and produced a very high quality set of applications based on sound arguments which was borne out in them being approved at first submission without any concerns raised by the planning officer.

Sal & Deepak, Bristol

Richard and Vicky and team really understood our situation and hand held us quite literally until the day permission was granted. They fully explained everything along the way and located, engaged and managed the many specialists that were needed to cover various issues and reports. So we are extremely thankful to them for making the journey much less stressful than it could have been and especially for always giving us the feeling that we had experts in our corner.  

Thoroughly recommend their services.
