The proposed development

Planning permission has been granted to construct a 6 bedroom family home extending to approximately 8225 sq. ft, a detached stable block and detached grooms quarters.

Located near to the house, plans have been approved for a detached brick and tile stable block comprising 3 loose boxes and feed store. The proposed building also includes a double garage with workshop and first floor tack room.
In addition plans have been approved for a detached single storey dwelling. The proposed accommodation briefly comprises one double bedroom, open plan kitchen/living area, bathroom, office and boot room. Adjoining the dwelling an open fronted horse box parking area and kennels are proposed.

Planning permission reference 09/01914/FUL was granted on 29th December 2009 for the “erection of a three storey detached dwelling, stable outbuildings and grooms quarters building, creation of hardstanding and replacement of existing gates following demolition of existing dwelling and outbuildings”. The pre-commencement conditions have been discharged and Shropshire Council have confirmed that a material start has been made and the permission will remain valid and lawful in perpetuity providing all work is carried out in accordance with the approved details.
