Rural Workers Dwelling - Midlands

5th December, 2018 by Acorus in General

Planning permission has been secured for a park-home (temporary dwelling) for a client in South Staffordshire relating to their equestrian business.  The permission also included a storage building to complement the existing stables and arena at the site.


The park-home has planning consent for a three year period and so will enable the equestrian business to develop and expand as planned, and ensure the continued care and welfare of the horses at the site.  Ultimately in 2-3 years time the proposal will be to secure planning permission for a permanent dwelling at the site for the equestrian business.
 
The client is very pleased with the outcome, and thanked Acorus for a ‘Top Job’ in advising them, guiding them through the planning process and securing the consent.
