North Farm Granted Planning Consent under NPPF Paragraph 79

A new estate farmhouse designed by Craig Hamilton was granted planning consent at a Stratford District Council Planning Committee meeting on 6 February 2019.

The Committee overturned the recommendation for refusal from the Planning Officers, and in so doing confirmed that the design met all the requirements of NPPF Paragraph 79 which allows new country houses in exceptional circumstances. The proposals were supported by the CPRE, Ward Councillor and the RIBA Traditional Architecture Group Peer Review Panel.
