Appletreewick campsite owner gets go-ahead for new home
9:00am Friday 28th December 2012 in News
The owner of an Appletreewick campsite has been given permission to create a family home.
Grant Hinchcliffe, who runs Masons campsite at Low Hall Farm, wants to convert Ainhams – a detached building on the site – into a three-bedroom house.
It is currently split into two apartments, one of which is occupied by Mr Hinchcliffe and his wife and the other is used for short holiday lets.
A design and access statement, drawn up by Taylor Design Architects, said Mr Hinchcliffe had made a long-term commitment to the business, which he bought in 2008, and now wanted to create a family home.
The scheme also involves erecting a small extension to provide a flexible living and dining space and a home office.
“We believe the proposals produce a well balanced, environmentally sound design solution to meet the needs of a growing family who want to remain in the local area both to live and run a successful business,” concluded the architects.
The application was approved by the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority under its scheme of delegation.
