BBM receives planning approval for a low-energy modern house in Mayfield, East Sussex
We are proud to announce, that planning approval has been granted for a low-energy house in Mayfield, East Sussex. The planning committee refused the initial scheme however with some minor alterations this was overturned at appeal.
The project proposes a replacement of the existing 1960’s dwelling with a contemporary low-energy house and associated landscaping to suit. The scheme aims to retain the split level characteristics of its predecessor. Particular sensitivity has been paid in selecting the exterior materials which will have a minimal impact to the surrounding area and account for changing material appearances throughout the properties lifespan. The design features a bipartite elevation consisting of natural stone walling to the lower level and a dark vertical timber at first floor. Significant amount of glazing to the south elevation of the house will allow for better views over the Weald. The scheme also features a flat meadow hay roof with Photovoltaic and Solar Thermal panels arranged to provide maximum efficiency.
The construction of the new house is expected to begin in the summer of 2019.
