Lower Green Farm

Lower Green Farm


RCC has been involved in numerous planning applications for replacement dwellings. With replacement dwellings planners are mainly considering the increase in size of the dwelling, its design, impact on the landscape and character of the area. In this instance our client had bought the bungalow shown in the photographs which also came with surrounding paddocks. The proposal was for a replacement two storey dwelling but with a contemporary design.

The initial design proposed by the client and their architect was always going to be a difficult scheme to gain support from locals and planners which turned out to be the case. RCC therefore suggested an alternative design route which the architect and client agreed with. The result was the scheme illustrated by the drawing extract and 3D images created.

The subsequent planning application was submitted by RCC and approved under delegated powers with no local objection and within the normal timescales. Ultimately our clients have achieved the floor space they required along with an attractive and contemporary designed house.

Thank you so much for dealing with my planning application and I just want to say what a fantastic job you have done.  Quick and efficient and I would highly recommend RCC. 

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.
