Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent Granted for Grade II listed Georgian House Extension.

We have prepared designs to extend a Grade II listed Georgian house in Ackworth, with a new bespoke, timber conservatory.  The proposals link the kitchen, dining room and patio space in full consideration of the historic significance and past alterations to the rear of the property.


Putting the Bell back in Bellerby!

After a long absence, the bell has been replaced in the spirelet of St Johns Church in Bellerby!  The bell, dated 1817, was in a very dangerous state several years ago.  The clapper had been removed and the bearings were so worn that the bell was condemned.

Specialists John Taylor & Co of Loughborough have rehung the refurbished bell on a new headstock and brackets, ready for swing chiming once again.  As inspecting architect for the church, we were involved throughout the process from removal to reinstatement, as well as arranging safe clearance of bird nesting material which had filled the whole base of the tower!


Consents for handrails

At first glance, a new handrail might not appear to need the services of a conservation architect, but when a handrail is needed in a conservation area, adjacent to a listed building and on a public right of way, things start to get a little more complicated! 

Calls Architecture have achieved planning permission and listed building consent for a new handrail in Fulneck, for one of our long-standing clients.  We have agreed the scheme with Leeds Public Right of Way team and have also arranged underground utility surveys to ensure that the rails can be installed without disturbing underground supplies!
