The Feed Station, a cyclist's dream cafe destination in Merriott, Somerset

- Planning permission granted for the change of use for a Grade II listed building
- Our Development Land and Planning department oversaw the application and negotiation which led to a positive result
When friends and cycling enthusiasts David, Jenny, Adrian and Louise couldn’t find a welcoming place to hang their helmets and embrace their lycra, they decided to create a place for themselves and likeminded cyclists. A building marketed by GTH known as, ‘The Former Sunday School’, caught the eye of the group. With planning permissions needed for the change of use of the Grade II listed building, the friends consulted our Development Land and Planning team to help them tackle the challenges ahead.
After an initial discussion with the friends’ about their vision, GTH embarked upon the design process for the scheme. The team oversaw the application while it was being registered and deliberated on by the Council’s Planning Officer, and subsequently negotiated the proposals with the Planning Officer through amended drawings to suit the friend’s requirements. The process came to a successful head, and Jack and the team said: “We were delighted to achieve a positive result.”
