Planning Permission Granted for New Arable Building in North Norfolk

9th January, 2019 by Acorus in General

Acorus South Midlands office managed this project on behalf of a major grower. Outdated buildings, including several listed buildings, on two nearby sites were no longer suited to modern storage techniques and standards. The project was met with opposition from the LPA as the proposed site was a former meteorological site. The buildings were derelict but the site was considered to be very visible. Careful and clever design of the building enabled virtually all the facilities to be housed under one roof, taking full advantage of the significant roof space required for the design. The facility is efficient and cost effective enabling long and short term storage of crops, materials, vehicle washing and workshop operations all under one roof. The proposal  includes rain water harvesting, dispersal of sprayer washings via a distribution system and a weighbridge with associated office.
