blog: further planning permissions obtained for new dwellings….

We are delighted that two of our recent planning applications for the construction of new houses have been approved this week. The first of these is for a proposed new detached dwelling in Baildon near Bradford, which will be constructed in a traditional architectural form, comprising 4 bedrooms, 3 of which will be within the roof-space of the dwelling, and 2 with en suite facilities, a large open plan living and kitchen area at ground floor, which will connect to an external deck via a large bi-folding door opening. The house will feature split level accommodation due to the ground levels across the site, a good deal of full-height floor to ceiling glazing and an open gallery landing at first floor. Building works are scheduled to start during the early part of 2012.

The second of our approvals is for a contemporary new dwelling which has featured in our projects pages and is located next to the Leeds and Liverpool Canal in East Morton, again, near Bradford. Architecturally, the dwelling is fairly ambitious, in terms of form and style however, it was the new dwelling’s proximity to a number of historical lime kilns, which were of a certain level of archaeological interest, which led to a lengthy planning application process, as opposed to any design issues. We overcame the concerns of Bradford Council’s planning department with an intricate proposal for the installation of pile foundations to support the new dwelling, which will be independent of the lime kilns, and following the eventual planning approval, we are now due to oversee the building works which are set to commence towards the end of 2011. More updates and photos will be uploaded shortly.
