Quirky Dwelling in Conservation Area Approved

Cotham, Bristol

Thu 03 March 22

Aspect360 has had planning permission granted for a new dwelling within Bristol’s Cotham Conservation Area for Peter White Properties. Previous agents had failed to gain consent so Aspect360 was appointed to advise on a new scheme and to brief the project architects 105 West Architects.

The new proposals were accepted by the council as being an enhancement of the conservation area and a high-quality, sustainable development.

Major Office Refurbishment and Extension

Bristol City Centre

Thu 10 February 22

Working with the Bristol family business of Eastman Estates, Aspect360 has gained planning permission to bring new life into one of Bristol’s traditional brick warehouse buildings, no. 3 Portwall Lane. The property sits opposite St Mary Redcliff Church, within the Redcliffe Conservation Area and has a local listing. Dating from the early 1880s, the building was designed by the renowned architect William Bruce Gingell.

As well as being completely refurbished to a high standard, the roof will be removed and a fourth-floor created. The building will then be used as serviced offices or by an education establishment.

A detailed historic assessment was provided to demonstrate the appropriateness of the development and the project architects 105 West provided CGI information to justify the proposals were appropriate within the historic setting.

Consent for ‘Infill’ Dwelling within the Green Belt

Tickenham, North Somerset

Thu 10 February 22

Acting for private clients, Aspect360 has gained planning permission from North Somerset Council for a new dwelling in the countryside. The challenge was to provide a robust planning argument to justify the development in an area outside of a designated settlement and within the Bristol & Bath Green Belt. Using national policy that allows ‘limited infilling’ the argument was made that the proposed development complied with the criteria.
Designed by WH Architects, the building will have a contemporary-modern, rural-domestic appearance, combining traditional rubblestone, timber weather-boarding and render. The 3-bed house is arranged over two storeys and is designed to a high-spec that will include a solar array to generate 20% of the electrical demand.

Planning and Listed Building Consent for New Dwelling

Sneyd Park, Bristol

Mon 22 November 21

Consent has been granted for the development of a coach-house style dwelling to be built within the curtilage of a Grade II listed building. An existing modern garage and period stone boundary wall will be replaced with the new 3-bedroom dwelling. It is designed to appear as a contemporary twist on a traditional coach-house, but an ancillary building to the main listed house that fronts Bristol Downs.
Aspect360 was key to ensuring the design responded to the listed house setting and conservation area context, providing advice to the project architects 105 West on the key principles.

Retrospective Planning Permission for Gin Distillery

Chew Magna, North Somerset

Thu 07 October 21

Retrospective planning permission has been issued by Bath & North East Somerset Council for a gin distillery, gin school and drinking establishment. Chew Valley Distillery had commenced use of the premises in the centre of Chew Magna before they were alerted to the need for planning permission. Aspect360 were instructed to provide supporting information and importantly, demonstrate the appropriateness of the use within the location.
Chew Valley Distillery is a family run business that has a close association with the Lazy Lobster restaurant in the village. They
have ambitious plans for expanding to other locations and to source more of their produce from local suppliers.
