What we’re working on this month: August

We have now achieved Listed Building Consent and Planning Permission for Rose Cottage in Wootton Fitzpaine (pictured above), which requires sympathetic improvements by the new owners.

We also have two exciting new commissions. The first is to prepare an application for Listed Building Consent for the former Alcove Hotel on Marine Parade in Lyme Regis. The second is to prepare a second application and appeal against refusal of Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent for Tarrant Ruston House.

What we’re working on this month: July

Bellair House near Charmouth, a fine Regency house now converted into three flats.

We’re pleased that the Grade II listed Georgian house and cottage near Charmouth are finished. The house, divided into three flats, and the separate cottage are now on the market.

The planning application for a Grade II farmhouse and outbuildings in Ryall have been submitted. The aim here is to create extra accommodation by converting old buildings and also make some improvements to the main house.

And we have a new project in Charmouth – a modern bunglaow built in the 1970s with panoramic sea views but needing remodelling and updating. Plus we’re doing another Statement of Heritage Significance for property in East Devon.   

In June planning approval came through for a commercial property in Cheap Street in Sherborne. This month we are anticipating approvals on addresses in Lyme Regis and Wootton Fitzpaine.

Angel Architecture attends students’ degree show

Degree show wows mentor Kim Sankey.

We had a wonderful time attending the degree show for the four architecture students we’ve been mentoring at UWE Bristol.

Director Kim Sankey said: “All four students produced some exciting work, beautifully presented and well argued strategies. I was most impressed and extremely proud to be their mentor.”

Kim founded the practice in 2014, having spent 30 years working with old buildings in the UK and abroad. For almost ten years she was Head of Design and Conservation at West Dorset District Council.
