Skipwith approved at Planning Committee

Vincent & Partners proposals for a new spacious 5-bedroom dwelling were granted planning permission following committee meeting in November 2020.

The site, currently a vacant plot of land formerly an orchard to the adjacent farm is located off of Main Street, Skipwith. Located minutes away from the Skipwith Common National Nature Reserve, the proposed 2-storey dwelling will incorporate 5 generous double bedrooms and include a detached triple garage.

The Planning Application was recommended for approval by planning officers with the final decision being referred to Planning Committee in November 2020. The application had its complexities due to the site sitting outside of the Development Limits for Skipwith, however the application was successfully approved at the Committee meeting and represents a huge step forward with regards to how the council respond to development outside of the limits, of which it is clear from this outcome that development of this kind can be considered acceptable in certain circumstances.
