Development planning

AZ Urban Studio has secured planning permission for a new energy centre at Nutley Manor Estate in Hampshire. The new building, design by ADAM Architecture, incorporates biomass processing, storage and boiler under one roof, and will provide a sustainable heating source for the Grade II listed Nutley Manor House and other nearby Estate cottages.

We were instructed by the Estate following a previous planning refusal for a smaller proposal upon the site. Working with the client and the wider professional team we analysed and fully addressed the previous reasons for approval while doubling the size of the proposed building to enable the renewable energy operation to function efficiently within a single building.
