Conversion of Listed Police Station & Surrounding Outbuildings
Full Application Submissions
Despite numerous design alterations to respectfully address arboriculture, drainage and heritage issues. The process was not helped by a consistent turnover of council officers and new planning policy coming forward which was particularly pertinent to this site and the proposals submitted.
