We are pleased to announce the news of a successful planning permission achieved for the conversion of a former carpenter shed to a new residential dwelling at the Halston Hall Estate in Shropshire.
The proposed plan to renovate the structure, located within the estate forms part of a wider plan to convert several of the assets to onsite accommodation, which will provide a necessary income stream for the estate.
The building is a curtilage listed structure and as such the application required a sensitive scheme of conversion, working alongside the Council’s conservation officer to negotiate the design of the proposed conversion.
The permission allows for the careful conversion of the building, retaining key features wherever possible, maintaining and protecting the architectural and historic interest of the asset whilst creating a new dwelling which is suitable for modern living in the estate. The proposal also includes a number of ecological enhancements including the provision of bat and bird boxes and a bat house.
