Nettlestead Green House

DHA recently secured consent for a new four-bed house with a garage in the Green Belt at Nettlestead, near Maidstone.

With the support of the Parish Council and having received no objections from local residents or any of the statutory consultees, approval was secured through delegated authority from the planning officers, without the need to go to committee.

Key facts
  • New home application on Green Belt

DHA engaged in a pre-application consultation with the Council, followed by the submission of a detailed planning application for a new house on previously developed land, as it is currently a series of equestrian buildings and a ménage.

The new barn style dwelling of a traditional Kentish vernacular design and an attached garage can now be developed after DHA successfully argued the case that the removal of the equestrian buildings would enhance the openness of the Green Belt.

DHA made the case to the local planning authority that the development would result in the redevelopment of a previously developed site. It was also argued that the new dwelling would have a positive impact on the setting of the nearby grade II listed Nettlestead Green House.

The detailed drawings for the scheme, with its weatherboarding to the elevation and a clay tiled roof were prepared by DHA’s in-house Urban Design team.
