Conversion/ Re-Build of 2no derelict buildings into 8no flats

Boarded up for 10 years these adjoining properties were an eyesore and becoming a public danger due to dilapidation.  Located in a Conservation Area the proposed renovation, due to its prominent High Street location had to meld well with the surrounding street-scene.  To achieve this the front elevation design kept a commercial shopfront ‘look’ which was favoured by the Conservation Officer.  Directly abutting Paulton High street and with levels to the rear of the property making vehicular access impracticable: on site parking was a controversial issue. 

 

Due to its sustainable location and the renovation being of benefit to both the buildings and location we managed to achieve permission without any parking which was a departure from the Development Plan and, as such, a rare achievement outside of a major City centre.

Common sense and local amenity prevailed
