Success for Beacon Planning in Lincolnshire   
19 October 2016 | Posted by Joanna Burton
Grade II listed farm buildings on medieval abbey site saved through sensitive conversion and new build

Beacon Planning have been working with the client together with architects Ross Davey Associates and Masons Surveyors over a number of years on this large site in rural Lincolnshire.

The site is one of the finest historic sites in the borough, with a Grade II listed C18 manor house and separately listed barn complex located on this former abbey site complete with remains of the medieval moat designated as a scheduled monument. The site forms the focus of the village conservation area.

Beacon Planning were first appointed to seek scheduled monument consent for the removal of a conservatory on the listed manor house.

Beacon then prepared a heritage appraisal of the historic complex to inform and support its redevelopment. The historic farm buildings have been redundant for a number of years and are in a poor state to repair. Their conversion, funded by some new build elements, will ensure their long term conservation and contribution to this important historic site.

We are delighted that after extensive negotiation with the local planning authority and Historic England that this application received unanimous support at planning committee last week and look forward to seeing works start on site!
