Darley Dale, Derbyshire
Construction of care home, conversion of exisiting buildings and delivery of new homes
Client: Frontier Estates Ltd
Planning Authority: Derbyshire Dales District Council
Project Status: Pre-application Stage
Following our initial appraisal, and our assessment of the redevelopment potential of the site, we collaborated with architects WRDunn to prepare a pre-application submission to establish the views of the Local Planning Authority. Initial advice from officers has been very positive regarding the principle of development, and our engagement with the Parish Council and local community also resulted in a high level of support. Some design amendments have been suggested and we have worked proactively with stakeholders to evolve the proposals.
The project will see the demolition of the existing vacant office building and the construction of a 78 bed care home within Class C2, the conversion of Darley Lodge into seven apartments and a terrace of three new dwellings.
- Pre-application submissions in February and June 2018
- Planning application to be submitted in July 2018
Gillings Planning have guided the strategy for this site from its early days, and have developed some strong relationships with the Parish Council - for which we were thanked at a recent meeting. They have eye on all the relevant issues and have everything under control!”Max Paddick, Frontier
