'Truly Outstanding Design'

We are delighted that this scheme, designed by Director Ross Sharpe, was approved this week under the 'Paragraph 79' rules. These rules allow for houses to be built in open countryside only if they meet the standard of 'truly outstanding or innovative design' as well as significantly enhancing the immediate setting. To our knowledge, this is the first non-classical, traditional house to have received such a consent.
