Planning permission is in
Over the past 12 months Bright Spark have been working with Smalley & Hales Architects, the South Downs National Park planning and historic buildings officers on the #projectfarmhouse.
There has been a lot of work carried out to design a scheme that extends and modernises the Farmhouse for a 21st century young family yet retaining the character and charm of the listed building. The current designs create a new open plan kitchen and dining space linked to the old kitchen (converted into utility room) and children’s play room. The garage, suffering from subsidence, will be replaced.
Once the building works are finished then the restoration of the rest of the house will start with a new heating and hot water system. We are planning to use all local contractors and local materials for the build.
Bright Spark Energy, have been involved in #projectfarmhouse since the very beginning. Saul and the Technical Team have been focussed on electrical and lighting design incorporating smart home technologies and ensuring the right renewable technologies will be installed. The team have designed in:
Solar Panels on the south facing roof and Battery Storage
Smart Home Tech so heating and lighting can be run from an iPad
Data and AV cabling with an integrated sound system
Our planning application is live on the SDNP planning portal - SDNP/19/03154/FUL All comments of support welcome.
