Westcombe Build Timeline

Planning Begins

Planning for the redevelopment of Westcombe and the Boathouse initially began in 2015 when we approached Stephen Guard of Stephen Guard Architects.

Planning Submitted

The planning application was submitted in March 2017, however given the property's prominent location in Batson creek, it took nearly 3 years to receive approval on the redevelopment.

Planning Granted

Finally, in December 2019 we were granted planning permission for the new property. However, due to the conditions placed on the planning permission it would be another 8 months until we were finally able to commence with the demolition phase of the project.

Demolition Begins

In November 2020, demolition finally commenced on the old property. Given the large amount of asbestos cladding on the property we engaged specialists Gilpin Demolition to carry out the demolition. In just 4 weeks the team was able to safely remove and dispose of the asbestos before demolishing the old property to the ground.

Creating a New Home

Whilst the demolition of our ancestors' home was met with a touch of sadness given the love they had for it, we are delighted to finally be able to commence with the construction of the new property, and hopefully make them proud.

Ground Works Commence

In February, the ground works commenced on the main house and the scaffold was erected on the Boathouse.
