Project: Proposed relocation of an existing landscape business  

Noake Farm, Churchdown Lane, Hucclecote

Client: T.Rimell

Aspect Landscape Planning were appointed to prepare a detailed Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment alongside an Illustrative Masterplan for the proposed relocation of an existing horticultural business within the Green Belt. Aspect Arboriculture were also appointed to prepare an Arboricultural Impact Assessment.

The relocation of the business is necessary to facilitate an approved residential development on land currently occupied by the client.

The application site is located at the existing Noake Farm, Churchdown Lane, Hucclecote, Gloucester which is situated approximately 0.7km north of Hucclecote. The application site currently comprises an established agricultural/equine/haulage related unit with associated buildings and structures in various states of repair, and extensive areas of hardstanding.

The proposed scheme includes the retention and restoration of the existing Coach House property and farm building adjacent to the western boundary, with all other derelict buildings and structures in a poor state of repair and agricultural waste mounds / rubble piles demolished or removed and the site area levelled. The curtilage listed Coach House is to be retained, restored and utilised for residential use and includes a new cart style lodge garage to the east, along with extensive new planting and landscape structure that will separate the residential property and the horticultural business. The restoration of the property and immediate adjoining areas will ensure that the setting of the adjacent Grade II Listed property of The Noake will be enhanced.

Planning issues: Landscape and visual impact, Green Belt development, Grade II Listed property.
