Peak District approve conversion of a domestic outbuilding

Emery Planning successfully obtained planning permission for conversion of a domestic outbuilding to self-catering holiday accommodation, in a remote part of the Peak District National Park.

The site was within a Site of Special Scientific Interest and in a location where local planning policies are highly restrictive. Although the application building was of no historic value in policy terms, Emery Planning successfully demonstrated that a broadly traditional design in combination with proposed improvements to the appearance of the property, was sufficient to justify approval of the application.
