SMR Architects, and the Design Team for Echo Green Developments, are pleased to announce the planning approval for a high-end new-build apartment scheme for 38 dwellings at the former Dunloppilo Factory site in Pannal. The application was submitted under the ZA Application permitted development rights, replacing the former derelict Dunloppilo office building. This proposal marks the latest phase of development for the wider village centre site, providing high-spec apartment accommodation over a range of different types, styles and sizes. Under the new development rights we have added two additional floors to the building including a spacious penthouse unit creating a dynamic form to the roofscape. The design aesthetic is meant to harken back to a former mill building conversion to sit more cogently in the immediate context of Pannal village, while minimising the massing and height of the building in a sympathetic way. The final phase of this area of the masterplan will see the inclusion of 10 small Class-E hybrid employment units.

We are excited to kick start the next phases of construction on the site, to realise this exciting new development, to Pannal village centre.
