One of our KEG members has finally received the news that he has been waiting for on Tuesday the 3rd of April when his planning permission was finally granted to allow the conversion of his Dutch Barn at Woodhayes Farm, Luppitt near Honiton.
Greg Page Turner blogged the next day saying "Yesterday, after a tense few weeks, we finally received planning approval to convert our Dutch barn into a space for offices, meeting room and art gallery. The application was initially refused and went to appeal with the final vote standing 10 for and 2 against. Nail-biting stuff!
Thank you so much to all those involved in helping our proposal through. I am sure that it will be a great asset to rural East Devon, the Blackdown Hills and especially to our parish of Luppitt.
This means we can embark on the final phase of our diversification of Woodhayes, perhaps our dreams of a Sculpture Trail look closer to realisation too.
Back to work after a few celebratory glasses of champagne last night, we are now on track and planning the conversion phase..."
Greg is keen to attach 'Green Credentials' to his scheme and consequently, was an early sign up to the KEG Project. Greg has now approached Genesis with a request for leads to fellow members who may be able to provide services including: - metal / alloy window systems, heat pumps, cooling processes, timber cladding / panels, rainwater harvesting, green roof, roof structure and internal partitioning
The KEG Project will track progress through the build phase and beyond and wish Greg every success with this enterprise.
