Project Summary

Preparation of a successful planning application for a barn for The Donkey Sanctuary. 

An interesting project, as our team had to take into consideration several design requirements: the barn’s use for the donkeys, the practicalities of the design to facilitate ease of care of the animals by staff and volunteers, and balance the design to make it acceptable in planning terms within the Peak National Park.
