Equine Veterinary Practice Case Study
- Project: Rural Development
- Case Study: Wiltshire
An equine veterinary practice covering the south west of England was seeking a central office for its partners, vets and others involved the essential administration of this growing business. An appropriate site was identified in Wiltshire which had operated under a mixed B1/B2 use as a car restoration workshop and offices. The site was purchased, and we were instructed to prepare a planning application to extend the building by an additional 66.52 sqm of floor space, and increase its available parking by an additional 10 spaces.
This case is a good example of how a persuasive and well researched planning justification statement can facilitate the expansion of a rural enterprise. When making the application, we successfully identified the relevant national and local plan polices which are supportive of the growth and expansion of rural businesses. In addition, we successfully identified policy support for the site’s location being adjacent to a village, and we successfully argued that it was already an established employment use, which would be replaced entirely by offices resulting in an improved use for the premises. As a result, planning permission was granted.
