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.
