Planning Application made to convert Wimboldsley Hall farm and buildings
After a good deal of work the application has now been submitted on behalf of our client for the adaption of the house into two dwellings and conversion of outbuildings to create a further twelve dwellings.
Working with Fisher German's Chester office planning team NWD Architects Ltd have developed a scheme to transform the site and convert redundant and under-used barns for residential use. David Tilley, Director of NWD Architects stated “As many of the older buildings in the farmyard are no longer suitable for modern farming methods, alternative uses are required for the buildings that have a distinctive architectural style".
“The conversions of the existing buildings have been designed sympathetically, retaining as much of the existing structure internally and externally, minimising disturbance to the building fabric. The number of proposed openings has been minimised and new openings replicate existing openings".
“New buildings and proposed extensions continue this distinctive architectural style of the existing buildings. Facing materials will be carefully sourced to ensure they match to the existing facing brick of the existing buildings as closely as possible.” NWD Architects Ltd have a long and excellent track record of repurposing and converting existing buildings to provide high quality housing, office and retail facilities. We look forward to seeing this strong scheme progress through the planning system and on to site. Article available to view in the Winsford Gaurdian here. Fisher German website
