Full planning permission for the construction of a two story extension to Holly Tree Cottage was approved by the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority on the 10th August 2018 under decision notice C/29/72.
A subsequent application for the alteration of the internal layout approved under the above permission together with an additional single storey extension was granted permission on the 15th November 2019 under decision notice C/29/72A. A copy of the approved plans and decision notices are available via email from the agents on request.
Since the granting of planning permission for the extension of the cottage, a significant programme of renovation and building works has commenced centred around the refurbishment and reconfiguration of the original cottage in readiness for the addition of the extensions.
Works undertaken to date briefly comprise:
removal of entire internal fabric of the original cottage; rebuild gable wall incorporating new steels, chimney stack and two way fireplace; replacement of all stone window surrounds, complete overhaul of roof including incorporation of oak beams, membrane and re-roofing the front elevation (rear elevation has been left to tie in with new extension roof); laying of sub floor to internal ground floor; boarding and render to internal walls; installation of new timber joists and first floor; creation of new back door opening; soil pipe re-routed around proposed extension; foundations laid for approved extensions; construction of retaining wall to garden incorporating electric cables.
The approved plans provide accommodation on two floors which will briefly comprise a living room, lobby with stairs to the first floor, utility room with separate wet room and an open plan kitchen/dining area and sun room. The first floor has a central landing, master bedroom with en suite, house bathroom and two further bedrooms with built in wardrobes.
