We are delighted to have secured planning approval in Green Belt and the Chilterns Area of Natural Beauty (AONB) for a large extension and remodelling project on a neglected 1960s property.  The proposal will include a first-floor extension and a complete re-layout of the ground and first floors.  The external appearance will also be transformed with new stone clad and render walls replacing a deteriorating brick facade.  Due to the size of the proposal, and its location within an AONB (AONB's will often have strict planning constraints in terms of volume and floor areas) permitted development rights were secured for several outbuildings prior to the house application as a means of offsetting the volume increase of the extension.  Work is due to start on site imminently.
