Planning Permission obtained for residential development in Hermitage

26th July, 2021

Pro Vision has achieved full planning permission for four new homes within the former garden of The White Horse Public House in Hermitage on behalf of our client.

The scheme for 2no. two-bedroom, 1no. three-bedroom, and 1no. four-bedroom homes was approved under delegated powers by West Berkshire District Council.  The scheme makes efficient use of land within the Hermitage Settlement Policy Boundary, and enables the reconfiguration of the pub garden and its car park to better appeal to patrons.

Pro Vision Director, Katherine Miles, said: “Naturally our client is thrilled with this result.  This permission maximises the value of a sustainable site with four sensitively designed dwellings which will boost the supply of housing in the village.  In addition, the scheme has the potential to support the viability of the Public House with a refreshed pub garden, car park and play area, which will benefit the local community.”

Designed by Pro Vision architects, the houses are set within a courtyard, separated from the pub by a boundary wall to provide privacy.   The houses will be of traditional construction with the use of brick, render and timber cladding for the walls, and clay roof tiles.
