New Dunsley Farm on Cartworth Moor has been running and providing poultry and game since the 1960s. Owner David Sykes and wife Patricia have owned and successfully operated the farm and business since 1977.
After identifying negative trends in the poultry industry over several years and issues due to the business's remote location, a long-held ambition and plan to sympathetically redevelop the land was put in to place.
The Sykes family were always conscious of the impact on the greenbelt of the existing industrial chicken sheds. Their plan was to have a residential development with the appearance of traditional farmhouses or converted barns, which retains an agricultural aesthetic that relates to the vernacular. This will therefore have a more positive visual and environmental effect .
The principle of development was to remove the existing industrial style operation and its associated negative aspects and replace with a high quality, sustainable and appropriate development which would be of benefit in all aspects to the locality including the increase in openness of the greenbelt.
As the local vernacular style is that of rural agricultural buildings the aesthetic of the proposed building will be that of traditional farmhouses or converted barns. Where more modern, larger glazed elements are to be used they are to emulate traditional openings such as cart or stable openings.
