The cabin had previously been granted permission as part of a new equestrian yard but permission has now been granted for a permanent dwelling on the site in place of the cabin. The council had requested that the cabin should be removed but RCC made a strong case as to why the cabin should be retained for uses complimentary to the equine business. This case was accepted by the council and the cabin can stay.
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.
