THE RED LION, BAILEY HEAD
Planning and Listed Building Consent Application for two-storey kitchen and function room extension.
En-Plan: Planning & Architecture are now acting as the Planning & Architectural Consultants for Red Lion Public House, which is a Grade II Listed Building located in the heart of the Oswestry Conservation Area. En-Plan have submitted both a full planning application and a Listed Building Consent Application to Shropshire County Council and approval for both elements has been received.
The challenges that we faced were the position of the building in the Oswestry Conservation Area and the listed status of the building. The official listed entry for the property on the is as follows:
SJ 2929 NW 14/14
OSWESTRY C.P. BAILEY HEAD (east side) The Red Lion Inn
House, now inn. Early C19 with later additions and alterations. Stuccoed red brick with concrete tile roof and red brick end stack to right. 2 storeys to main range with 3 storeys to gable on left; 1:3 windows, 16-paned glazing bar sashes with painted stone cills, canted bay window to centre of main range, which has Roman Doric porches with plain entablatures to left and right, former with C20 half-glazed door and rectangular overlight, latter smaller and infilled.
En-Plan established a good working relationship with the Council and were able to refine the design in conjunction with the Planning and Conservation Officer and work towards approval which was granted following alterations to the fenestration proposed. En-Plan are subsequently worked with the applicant to submit a non-material amendment to the original approval to deal with changes the applicant wishes to make post approval, and we have also working on a building regulations application to cover the technical detail of the build and incorporate the structural calculations for the steel frame that forms the central frame of the extension..
Following approval of both the planning and building control elements of the scheme En-Plan were able to gain consent for the replacement of the widows to the front of the property with double hung sash windows to enhance the thermal efficiency of the building and improve the overall aesthetic. For this En-Plan worked in partnership with The Heritage Glass Group in order to provide the sectional detail required to satisfy the Conservation Specialist at Shropshire County Council.
