Slow and steady wins the race

The Sheldon Bosley Knight planning and architecture department has won planning consent for a new residential development of four units at Lower Portway Farm, Sedgeberrow.
It has taken three years from initial enquiry to final approval, but the outcome is better than originally envisaged and shows that taking the time to work with the council to perfect a scheme is worth it.
The process took three planning applications, two committees and one dedicated team. What started out as a straightforward modern barn conversion, developed into a final scheme of four brick new build homes which complement their surroundings.
As one of the first of a new trend in Wychavon District of replacing Class Q barn conversion with new build houses, this approval demonstrates what can be achieved when clients are willing to take the time, and work with us on something new and untested. The results speak for themselves. Not only is the new scheme more in keeping with the character of the area, its more traditional residential style can be more appealing to buyers as well.
