This week we received approval for the conversion of a barn into residential accommodation within the Snowdonia National Park.
Planning guidelines for building design, renovations and extensions are much more stricter within the UK’s national parks.
An understanding of working with National Parks
We’ve undertaken numerous projects in Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons national parks and understand how to approach such projects.
It’s important to demonstrate how the final design will complement the local environment.
We carefully research the history of the structure we’re working on along with those in the immediate area. This ensures are design is in keeping with the locality as well as the wider countryside and community.
We also work closely with the national trust planning officers throughout the process.
When it comes to converting a barn into residential accommodation it is a change of use.
Change of use
So, we also have to demonstrate that the building is no longer in use and why the conversion will protect and maintain the property.
