Beech Grove Community
Nonington, Kent, UK
Upon newly acquiring a redundant sports college this residential community, together with its manufacturing facility run by the community, needed a master plan to guide development. The existing buildings were analyzed and uses designated. A plan for use of the various buildings was developed and renovation plans drawn up for converting part of the service areas of the main house, a Victorian country house designed by architect George Devey, to flats. Since the main house is a listed building these plans had to be approved as being compatible with the historic character of the structure. Another aspect of the services AOJA provided was assistance with the preparation of a grant application to the Heritage Lottery Fund.
