Windmill Project Starts – July 2006

In July 2006 Glyn Buckle, of Buckle Chamberlain Partnership Ltd and Geof Wallis of Dorothea Restorations Ltd were commissioned to prepare the drawings and details for an application to restore & re-use the windmill as a single holiday unit, available for rent.
The details were drawn and, towards the end of September 2006, the application was submitted to Monmouthshire Planning and Conservation Officers.

Both the planning and conservation officers were extremely helpful, and in January 2007, permission had been granted, subject to various conditions.
Over the next few months Glyn worked hard and managed to get the various conditions discharged, so that, come May we were ready to erect the scaffold.
