St Margaret’s School, Bushey

DLA helped St Margaret’s School to achieve a much-needed new music block in the Green Belt and linked to the existing listed school building, which is now under construction. This involved negotiating with the Council’s Heritage Team to show that the previous structure was not fit for purpose and not worthy of retention, and the justifying of a modern design with complementary materials to the main building. DLA was able to show that the proposal was within the Council’s infill envelope and had a smaller footprint and so was acceptable in Green Belt terms.
