Listed Cottage Flush Casement Windows
Gaining Approval for new windows for a Listed Building
Gaining planning approval for homes within the heavily protected Yorkshire Dales National Park comes with its challenges, however these have not proved unsurmountable in specifying the Timber Windows Listed range of windows for Ms Shaw’s cottage; a Grade II Listed, 17th Century example, successfully granted permission for our casement windows.
“The detailed, computerised drawings and specifications provided by Timber Windows were a big advantage and made the process much easier when filling in all the forms, as all the information I required was at my fingertips”
Ms Shaw explains.
Preserving and Protecting the Home
Our ultra-slim 14mm double-glazed units were permitted in replacing single glazed windows.
“In an area where even the sheds and greenhouses in your garden require planning permission, as you would expect, the planning officers were diligent in checking the details of bar style, putty finishing and bar placement, and yet our application sailed through in just 8 weeks.”
High performance, authentic timber windows
“We’re happy to live in a conservation area and that our home has the listed status, as we’re ensuring its preservation now and in the future. In terms of the windows, apart from the vastly improved aesthetics, we’re pleased to no longer have to use the shutters to keep warmth in nor having to clean off the regular build ups of black mould and condensation.”
