Planning Application Submitted for New Pavilion

Tuesday, March 27th, 2018

We submitted a full planning application last week to Aylesbury Vale District Council for a new sports and community pavilion in Haddenham, Buckinghamshire. The village is currently a hive of activity, as construction is underway on a couple of residential developments to deliver in the region of 500 new dwellings over the next few years.

Section 106 money from the developers is helping to finance a number of community infrastructure projects, which includes the provision of new sports and community facilities. Haddenham Parish Council appointed us to design and project manage the construction of a pavilion building next to new football pitches.

Our design for the building has taken into account the proximity of new houses, in keeping a low eaves height to the front to reduce the massing of the building. The part green sedum / part standing seam zinc roof has PV panels incorporated into the design. There’s a central glazed lobby space which splits the wings of the building into social and sports. Two changing rooms with showers are included, together with a large function space for indoor sports and activities.

 

 

 

The principle of the pavilion development was established at outline planning stage, but we are hopeful that full planning permission will be granted shortly by the Local Authority so that construction can begin this summer.

 

 

Planning Granted for Three Local Projects

Wednesday, March 15th, 2017

March Residential Projects Photo - Chearsley Rd & PotashAylesbury Vale District Council recently granted planning permission for three of our residential projects in the space of a week.

Two of our clients live next door to each other in a pair of semi-detached dwellings. We advised that it can sometimes be easier to apply for permission to carry out construction works together. In this case, permission was given for both to construct a two storey rear extension to their homes, larger than they could have achieved independently. There should be cost savings available if both appoint the same builders to carry out the extension works simultaneously.

Our third residential client located near our office in Haddenham would like to build a modest single storey rear extension and also convert their garage with a view to creating a larger kitchen / breakfast room. Planning permission was granted 10 days ahead of the deadline, and everyone is very pleased to have received consent so quickly.
