Planning Consent obtained for Grade II Listed Building

Planning Consent obtained for Grade II Listed Building within landmark 19th C Snuff Mill

Our planning department recently obtained planning consent for a change of use on behalf of our client Cosmetic Junkie Ltd. The change of use related to The Lodge, a 19th Century building sitting within the curtilage of the Grade II Listed Westbrook Snuff Mill, a former steam powered snuff mill built in 1831, now converted into offices. It is believed that the Lodge may have once been used as ancillary living accommodation for a senior employee or manager at the snuff mill, but in recent years it too has been used as office accommodation. The Lodge's new use will be as a dermatological clinic, with ancillary offices, for use by Cosmetic Junkie’s in-house professionals and visiting experts.  
During the application process, Walker Wood Limited's planners had to consider not only the building’s location within the curtilage of the Grade II Listed snuff mill, but also Westbrook Court’s location within the Porter Brook Conservation Area and a local Housing Area.
