Thinking about building your own home in the open countryside?

In that case the house will come under Paragraph 55 clause of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF). There is no template for this type of project, every house proposed needs to be truly outstanding or innovative.  We are working clients to push the boundaries of design to offer a case for sustainable innovation as part of a planning applications. It was interesting to hear opinions of others in the industry who attended the eco Showcase at St James’ Park, Newcastle upon Tyne regarding the UK governments scrapping of the Zero Carbon target for 2016 and we are very pleased our clients want to exceed the current building regulation requirements as part of their innovation.
