In my initial write up of the brewery plans, I mocked up an image of the proposed balcony and veranda. Now, the brewery has provided a better image. Shropshire’s Council conservation team has also said that it has no objections (19/05500/FUL).
Shropshire Council Conservation comments
The building is not listed nor in a conservation area but would be considered to be a non designated heritage asset worthy of consideration in planning decisions due to its age, traditional construction and historical association with the railway. The proposal involves the removal of an existing verandah type structure and replacement with a large more substantial verandah with a balcony above and small flat roofed extension to house a servery. The balcony will be surrounded by a glass balustrade and supported on what appears to be steel columns. the single storey extension will be constructed in brick to match the existing building and a flat roofing material to be determined. The proposed balcony extension is of a simple form and design which is considered to generally remain subservient to the main building, the use of a simple glass balustrade will minimise the visual bulk of the structure. Therefore the general principle of the proposed extension is considered to be acceptable in this instance provided the detailing and materiality are of high quality, these details should be conditioned.
