Approval for relocation of new wedding facility at Listed Hotel
We have been successful in obtaining planning permission for the relocation of a wedding gazebo within the grounds of the Grade II listed Audleys Wood Hotel in Winslade, Basingstoke on behalf of our client Hand Picked Hotels Ltd.
We previously obtained permission for the gazebo but it was considered afterwards that a location closer to the listed Hotel building, further away from existing trees, would be more suitable. The amended submission required the preparation of a revised Heritage Statement.
The hotel is a Victorian Country House built in 1880, containing 72 bedrooms and is surrounded by 2.8 hectares of lawn and woodland. The proposal is for a new gazebo, which would be used in connection with a marquee for which we obtained planning permission two years ago. The gazebo would be a wooden structure with a tiled roof and be used for wedding ceremonies and other similar events.
The proposal will significantly improve and strengthen the Hotel as an attractive wedding location and is a perfect addition to its continued success and hence the upkeep and maintenance of the listed building.
