We were approached by the owner who had previously had issues with the planning department when the building was first built a number of years ago. They were understandably concerned about the proposal to now use the building as a holiday let and ask RCC to review the planning history and assess the proposal against local and national planning policy. We felt we had a very strong case to support the proposal and as such we were instructed to prepare and submit a planning application on their behalf. We ensured that as robust a case as possible was set out with the application and we were delighted when approval was given under delegated powers.
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.
