Maisey Farm

Maisey Farm


RCC worked closely with PKA Architects who were commissioned to design a new classical country house just outside of Marlborough. As shown in the photographs, the site consisted of a complex of farm buildings and a number of houses along the ridge line. The proposal was to demolish all bar one of the dwellings and some agricultural buildings and build a new dwelling in their place. This new dwelling would be linked to a courtyard of buildings which would provide an annexe, ancillary accommodation and garaging. The extracts of drawings and 3D images shown were all prepared by PKA.

Due to the scale of the proposed development and sensitive siting in a very attractive landscape setting (the site is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), the application was carefully presented with a robust planning case. A number of other specialist consultants were used to deal with landscape impact and ecological matters etc.


Even once the comprehensive application was submitted further extensive negotiations were required with the council, the result however was an approval and work is now well underway.

Following a long neighbourly dispute about the use of our garden outbuilding we engaged Richard to apply for formal permission to use the building as a holiday let. Richard and his assistant Rachel drew up a detailed planning statement and followed through the application process and resulting queries in a thoroughly balanced and professional manner. The outcome was positive and I have already recommended RCC to others.

We retained the services of RCC Town Planning Consultancy to assist us in preparing and submitting a retrospective planning application to change the windows and a couple of other issues in a building that although not listed, apparently fell in the curtilage of neighbouring listed buildings.

The team are highly experienced and produce a professional, complete planning statement leaving absolutely nothing to be challenged. We dealt primarily with Vicky who kept on top of any comments posted, supplying responses where necessary and keeping us informed at every step. 

We had a positive outcome on our first application and  would definitely use Richard and his excellent team again. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone requiring planning assistance.

Siggi Marchetti and David Taylor, Hampshire

We are very grateful for your efficient and very professional service to steer our planning application to a successful outcome. Considering that it was far from a straightforward case it proceeded to a satisfactory conclusion without any holdups. 

This was entirely due to your comprehensive build of the case and the detail and foresight in covering all angles. Needless to say we would recommend RCC Town Planning to anyone without any hesitation.
