Graham + Sibbald are pleased to announce that our Planning + Development Team have successfully gained planning consent for a change of use from Class 9 to Class 4 at Bridgend, Bonar Bridge, near Ardgay in Sutherland.
The property, an attractive three-storey traditional house, was previously in use as a residence and was being marketed as such. When interest was shown by a local fish farm operator to use the property as their new main office and to allow them space to grow the business, Graham + Sibbald’s Planning + Development Team were appointed to obtain the necessary planning permission for change of use.
Through working with the client and the Highland Council, consent was successfully secured on the 6th of February, just two months since instruction, and before the Council’s deadline for determination.
Our Graduate Planner, Murray Rankin, commented; “We’re delighted that there has been a quick and positive outcome on this application. Getting the consent was important to this local business for their future ambitions and it is very satisfying to have been able to assist with their growth aspirations. It is encouraging to see that the Highland Council recognises the value that businesses like our clients’ have to the local economy and that they are willing to support them in ways such as this.”
