Landowners dream come true with planning permission granted for a Barn Style Self Build Bungalow in Bedfordshire.

The site is currently agricultural land adjoining the Settlement Envelope.

The application was supported by a Landscape and Visual Assessment prepared by The Landscape Partnership.

The LVA concluded that the proposed dwelling would reflect the existing settlement character of individual detached properties set along the road as a linear form, with a strong connection to the countryside. Thus the proposals would retain the identity of the area.

The Planning Officer concluded that the design of the bungalow was considered to be appropriate in terms of its scale and bulk, with a low roof. Given the set back nature of the site, the lower level of the proposed building and the extensive landscaping around the site he considered that it would have an acceptable impact on the character and appearance of the area.

We have also assisted the landowner with the discharge of conditions and a Full Plans Building Regulations application.

The landowner is now ready to commence work on site.
