Double Success at Hensol Castle, Vale of Glamorgan

GJP are pleased to announce that two separate planning applications were recently approved at Hensol Castle, Vale of Glamorgan. The wider site is a Grade II Listed Historic Park and Garden, with the Castle itself being Grade I Listed.

The first approval was for the provision of an amended functions area within the outer courtyard of the Castle itself, to provide a restaurant, bar and servicing facilities. The development would replace a previous consent for a spa complex in the same location. In reaching a decision, the Council recognised the high-quality of the design proposed, which was considered to be appropriate and sensitive to the historic importance of the castle and its setting.

The second approval was a hybrid planning application as an ‘enabling development’ to facilitate the restoration of Hensol Castle. The application comprised a full application for the erection of 10 dwellings, as well as an outline application for the erection of 6 detached dwellings, at two different sites within the Castle Park. The public benefit of the works was recognised by the Council in reaching a decision on the application. The revenue secured as a result of the developments would be legally tied to the restoration works of the castle, ensuring its long term preservation as an important heritage asset.
