Flight Farm Para 55
This 2.3 acre site, on the outskirts of Cheltenham, is set within an open glade that contributes to the character and quality of the site and the wider landscape.
The proposed Para 55 dwelling will retain these two distinct clearings, enabling the new dwelling to enjoy uninterrupted views across the wider landscape beyond.
The conceptual design is derived from a combination of the site’s historic past, connection to quarrying and baking lime for mortar. Flight Farm’s main characteristic is the 11.7m chimney with a circular skylight which sits beside the main body of the house.
This striking feature is reminiscent of the traditional lime kilns that can be found across this part of the Cotswolds (AONB).
The planning application for this unique project was granted by Tewksbury Council in 2015, under the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) Paragraph 55. This policy has now been superseded by the current National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) Paragraph 79e, which sets out the Government's policy requirements for rural development in the open countryside.
