Householder Planning Application submitted and apporved for a new extension at Spoonacre House.




Householder Planning Application for a new householder development in Shifnal submitted to. and approved by. Shropshire County Council.

Following an initial consultation with the client En-Plan: Planing & Architecture formulated and submitted a Householder Planning Application for a new open sided car port with two new bedrooms above at first floor by elongating the property by five metres.  The house itself is located in a designated Conservation Area but the design utilised the existing style of the main unit, and the Conservation Officer had no issues with the submission.  Construction work is expected to start in 2021.

The property is located in The civil parish of Stockton, of which the village of Norton is the largest settlement includes Stockton and Higford, lies in the mixed farming belt of east Shropshire. It is to be found five miles to the north of Bridgnorth and fourmiles to the south-west of Shifnal.

The parish is bounded on the west by the River Severn and on the east by the River Worfe, to the north lies Sutton Maddock and to the south Worfield. The land varies in height from 95 metres overlooking the Severn near Apley Hall, to 1.30 metres on Acorn Hill and Apley Terrace.

Historically, Stockton dates to the Bronze Age, but was first mentioned in the Domesday Book in 1086, alongside its rival township of Higford. Today the parish lies within the bounds of the Apley Estate, owned by Lord Hamilton of Dalzell.

The Planing Submission and Subsequent Appraisal

En-Plan: Planning & Architecture have been instructed by Mr. Richard Marshall  to apply for Planning Permission for a new side extension to include and car port at ground floor level with two new bedrooms at first floor level. The Planning Application was submitted along with a Heritage Statement will demonstrate how the application is fully planning policy compliant and how the scheme will preserve and enhance the character and setting of the locality.


The site forms part of the Norton Conservation Area and is located within the built confines of Norton village. Located to the east is 11-12 Village Road which is a non-designated heritage asset (as defined under Annex 2 of the NPPF) which is built in the Duke of Sutherland style. The applicants want to add additional bedroom space and additional covered space for vehicular parking. The unit is set centrally within a large residential plot with highways located to the east and south with existing residential development to eh north and west.

 Village Road is located to the fore with a cul-de-sac to the side which separates the unit from the non designated heritage asses to the east thereby preserving the spacious suburban character of the area.


The proposed extension will not form an overbearing development in relation to adjoining units or erode levels of residential amenity in the locality.  With regard to this the applicants will liaise with the Council to ensure the materials used and finish meet the high standards required and match the existing unit. With the above mitigation strategy the scheme will preserve and enhance the setting of the Conservation Area.


The proposal will mirror existing property and preserve the character of the locality and with the mitigation proposed the scheme can be accommodated in the Conservation Area whilst preserving and enhancing the character of it.  This is shown by the completed extension below.
