‘Roseyard’, Wells Farm, Woodnesborough
- Studios: Planning
- Client: MPL Group
- Location: Woodnesborough, Kent
- Completed: 2019
Our planning team, led by Nathan Anthony, successfully secured planning permission for Roseyard, an outstanding collection of holiday lets in the rural Kent countryside for client, MPL Group.
The project involved the conversion of disused agricultural buildings, creating spectacular luxury accommodation, whilst retaining much of the character of the original structures.
The original brick barn has been converted into two separate lets; a 4-bedroomed unit which is the showpiece of the scheme, with its double-height galleried open-plan living space, and a separate two-bedroomed unit.
The adjacent Cart Lodge and Stables have also been concerned, providing a three bedroomed let and a one bedroomed unit respectively.
All units offer the same level of luxury and precise high-quality detailing, making Roseyard a stunning holiday destination for groups of any size.
Planner, Nathan Anthony, worked hard to achieve planning permission for this challenging scheme. Situated in a rural setting, local planning policy was resistant to development away from other community settlements. This was further complicated by the ‘curtilage’ listed status of the buildings, being close to the Grade II Listed Farmhouse.
The client was eager to prevent further decline of the disused buildings, and was keen to preserve them sympathetically. This respect for the existing buildings and their peaceful rural setting was also seen favourably by the Local Planning Authority.
Acting as the client’s Planning Consultant, Nathan Anthony successfully highlighted the benefits the scheme would bring to the local rural area, securing planning permission for our client.
