The client required a small-scale yard to allow her and her family to keep their horses within the grounds of their own property and to pursue their recreational enjoyment of equestrianism.
The yard comprises four stables and ancillary facilities including a tack and feed store. In addition a separate hay, bedding and implements store was necessary for bulk deliveries and storage. To allow the client and her daughters to ride all year around an all weather floodlit manège was also necessary.
Initially designed in brick and flint to reflect the design of the client’s dwelling, following Conservation Officer’s comments this was amended to black timber boarding to create a less prominent development.
Located on the outskirts of the settlement boundary, the site was situated in a Conservation Area with trees to the site boundary which were subject to TPOs, all of which were constraints to the planning process.
KWA gained planning permission in March 2012 and work began onsite immediately.
