As the first one of his row of terraced, 1820’s cottages to attempt to change the windows, Mr Newby’s recently refurbished home has drawn much attention from interested neighbours.

The Harewood House estate workers cottages were designated a Grade II listing in the 1960s to give them a protected status.

Obtaining planning consent for new windows

“Leeds City Council set out very clearly, the parameters of what would or wouldn’t be permitted. They informed me that the Ultra-Slim 14mm double glazed windows would be permissible, so I was able to make my application on this basis”

explains Mr Newby.

Planning consent was required for all changes to the property, even those to the rear of the property, much to Mr Newby’s surprise.

“The showroom team were great, and excellent to deal with, offering very helpful advice”

Inspiring neighbours to enhance their listed properties

Admiration for the new windows has come from all quarters,

“Passers-by and neighbours have been admiring them; the neighbours have a particularly keen interest and one has already had a quote to make the same changes.”

“With a fairly major road out the front of the house, I have really noticed the reduction in noise too.”
