We are now at the pre planning stage for the project at Smithfield Farm in North Kelsey Moor and are consulting West Lindsey District Council about the proposed works. It was decided to opt for pre-planning advice from WLDC due to the scale of the project. The integrated garage adds a significant floor area to the extension which would be much more moderate in scale if constructed as a detached item under permitted development rights.
Clients and architects in Lincolnshire don’t always use the pre- planning advice route, available from local councils, which has typically become a chargeable item in the planning process. Pre-planning helps highlight any issues associated with a planning application so that they can be addressed prior to a full planning application to give the best chance of approval.
We look forward to bringing you further news of the project once pre-planning advice has been received.
