The Elms, Rottingdean, nr. Brighton
Parker Dann secured planning and listed building consent for alterations and extensions to form a new separate dwelling at The Elms in Rottingdean.
The Grade II listed dwelling, located in the Rottingdean Conservation Area, was once the property of Rudyard Kipling, and had been in the ownership of our Clients since the late 1970s when upon purchase they fully restored the property.
However in more recent years our Clients considered the property too large for their needs although they had no wish to leave the area that they were now so familiar with. The solution was to create a separate more modest sized dwelling that would be attached to The Elms, whilst not compromising the aesthetic beauty of the Grade II listed property. Working with Architects John D Clarke, the project required a considerable amount of pre-application discussion and negotiation with Senior Conservation Officers and Planning Officers at Brighton & Hove City Council, before agreement was reached finally on a design for the new dwelling and other ancillary works that was both recommended for approval by the officers and supported by Members at committee.
