This was a really exciting proposition for our clients who had been trying to find an appropriate unit in Devizes in with to open their new Rum Bar (https://www.muckanddunder.co.uk/). They had been working as a pop up bar at a wide variety of event but wanted to get a physical bar for themselves and now they finally have their planning permission. The application was not straightforward due to the old town centre planning policies being very restrictive to the loss of a retail use but recent change to planning rules meant a much stronger case could be made to support the proposal. We were delighted when permission was granted under delegated powers and look forward to the opening this Summer.
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.
