The buildings were part of a wider complex of buildings use by our clients business who is a significant employer in the area. The building were needed for a very specific improvement needed in the business and RCC felt the proposal was very reasonable and should be supported by the council. The conservation officer however raised a number of concerns and objected to the proposal, as a result RCC had to work closely with the engineers and architects working with us on the proposal in order to try and overcome the objections raised. We are delighted that persistence has paid off and permission has now been granted.
Latest commercial case studies:
This site was the main warehouse and distribution premises for the Devizes based brewery Wadworth & Co Ltd, containing workshops and stabling for shire horses. RCC became involved in this site to act on behalf of the brewery who intended to reorganise their activities and operations whereby the main site would become redundant as a result.
Sixpenny Nurseries have a small group of nurseries in Wiltshire. Their lease in Devizes was ending and new premise was a priority. RCC discussed possible options with them but a number of possible sites raised issues concerning the potential impact of the proposed use on traffic and residential amenity of an area.
RCC was asked by the architects for this job (PKA Architects) to assist them by submitting a planning application for a farm diversification proposal. The proposal, on a dairy farm, was to establish a micro ice cream factory within an existing small agricultural building whilst then building an additional linked building to house a café.
