Once again AJB Design & Build have carried out a successful planning application. The design brief was to construct an outbuilding that would serve as an office, with a mezzanine level for storage and an attached open sided carport. Having carried out the conversion of the listed barn at this site we had a unique relationship with the customer and also knew exactly what materials and detailing were required to satisfy the conservation department. AJB Design & Build will also be acting as the lead contractor for this project, and hope to begin work in the next 5 – 6 weeks. Check back with us for updates on the progress of the building work.
AJB Design & Build have now become a member of the AECB (The Association for Environment Conscious Building) further reinforcing our status as a sustainable architectural designer, planner and builder.
Another successful planning application put together by AJB Design & Build. For this project the client wanted to create more downstairs living space as the existing layout provided a cramped kitchen/living area with changes in levels and no natural flow. The proposed single storey rear extension will now provide the family with a large open plan kitchen/living area, a new ground floor shower room and an office.
Farmers, do you know your permitted development rights for agricultural outbuildings? The Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995 grants permitted development rights (works which do not require planning permission) for a range of agricultural buildings and operations. Rights for erecting, extending or altering a building, are available to agricultural holdings of at least 5 hectares under Class A. Restrictions do apply regarding size, location, use and proximity to other dwellings not within the agricultural holding. Always be sure to check that the building complies with the current legislation before commencing work. For more information contact AJB Design & Build.
