Planning team at Ridge obtains permission for para 79 dwelling near Cirencester

07 July 2020

The planning team are delighted to have obtained planning permission for a paragraph 79 dwelling at Dryleaze Farm Quarry, Siddington.

Ridge was responsible for the preparation and submission of the planning application which involved actively engaging with a number of groups including the local authority through pre-application discussions and a site meeting, the parish council, local residents and the Cotswold Wildlife Trust.

Ridge worked in collaboration with a highly experienced team of Architects, Landscape Architects and Ecologists producing a scheme which reflected the history and character of the landscape whilst incorporating innovative design techniques to maximise active and passive renewable strategies. The final scheme was also driven by the Client’s wishes to secure a valued legacy for future generations with landscape and biodiversity enhancement including habitats for BAP species.

The approved scheme comprises outstanding architecture, which is reflective, playful and innovative with sustainability at its heart. The landscape scheme complements the architectural form, creating an arrival experience, framed views and enhancements and creation of habitats for BAP species.

Ridge demonstrated to the LPA that the proposal met all relevant tiers of planning policy by representing innovative architecture which significantly enhanced its setting whilst being sensitive to the characteristics of the area.
