Plan submitted for five-storey home with rooftop pool

The proposal is for a revised design following the ideas of the previously approved application with ‘further facilities to enhance the property’

Grand designs have been submitted to convert a water tower into a five-storey home with a rooftop pool in rural Doncaster.

The applicants, listed only as Mr and Mrs Torr, want to turn a water tower on Bawtry Road, near Bawtry into a home with five floors, a lift, stair tower extension to the side and a rooftop pool.

The plans also include an extension to the roof of the tower to form a conservatory; a basement extension to provide parking and the creation of vehicular access and ramp with associated works.

Planning agent Anthony Snowden said these were amended plans and the impact on the countryside policy area would be minimal.

The proposal is for a revised design following the ideas of the previously approved application with ‘further facilities to enhance the property’.

The side has been extended and the current owner has purchased further land adjacent to the wood.

The applicant said this will ‘enhance the amenity’ available for the occupiers.

More accommodation has been added to the rear of the tower away from the road.

This will enable the extended amenity area at the ground floor which will encourage the use of the garden area, the application says.

Doncaster Council’s building regulations department were consulted on the means of escape strategy prior to the submission and a sprinkler system will be provided with a fire exit escape via a protected staircase.

Planning agent Anthony Snowden said: The applicant has considered potential uses of the existing structure.

He said: With knowledge of the greenbelt setting it is considered that the use for conversion to a single dwelling with a sympathetic design approach would be the most sustainable option for the continued use of this important structure.
