  • EXMOOR NATIONAL PARK PLANNING COMMITTEE EXMOOR NATIONAL PARK AUTHORITY MEETING

    6/9/17/117LB

    Mr M Harley, Exmoor National Park Authority, Exmoor House Kemps Way, Dulverton, Somerset

    Proposal: Listed building consent for proposed replacement of existing box

    guttering to the front elevation, to allow for the inclusion of T-Pren

    joints within the gutter. (Listed Building)

    Location: Exmoor House, Kemps Way, Dulverton, Somerset

    Application No:

    Grid Ref.

    Applicant:

    Introduction: Exmoor House is a Grade II listed building and was built as the Dulverton Union Workhouse in 1855. It is now the headquarters of the Exmoor National Park Authority. The property is located next to the River Barle, within a flood risk area, and to the east of Dulverton within the Conservation Area. The building has a formal façade with the front central section jutting forward slightly of the bays at either side. This central bay comprises the main entrance into the building. To the rear (north) is a long two-storey wing with less formal architectural treatment, but using the same stone. The Committee room occupies the first floor of this rear wing.

    The T-shaped plan was originally divided down the middle, with men accommodated in the west half and women in the east. At first floor level, the physical division between the east and west halves was largely lost in the 1960s when the building was occupied by Dulverton Rural District Council, but it is still reflected in the current layout of the stairs, which allow ascent on the left or right and two doors giving access to the Committee room.

    This listed building application seeks consent to replace the existing box gutting to the front (south) elevation of the building to allow the inclusion of a ‘T-Pren’ joint within the gutter.

    The application has been made by Exmoor National Park Authority and therefore comes before the Authority Committee for consideration.

    The papers submitted explain that the existing lead lined box gutters either side of the central front facing gable have begun to fail, showing significant signs of both wet and dry rot to the timber structure below, splits to the lead lines and general decay.

    The existing box gutter is primarily constructed of decorated softwood, double boarded to both the fascia and the soffit, with a crude lead lining. The papers explain that proposal intends to retain the elevational profile of the box guttering, adjusting neither the height nor width of the timber structure, but that the existing box gutter will be reconstructed using treated softwood, which will be lined with lead, with T-Pren joints. The T-Pren joint is essentially a neoprene ‘joint’ between two sections of lead, which has been designed to solve the problems of laying lead-lined parapet and box gutters with restricted falls. The details submitted explain that the joint will be lead dressed to conceal potential views along the front elevation.

    HISTORIC ENGLAND: Does not wish to object to these proposals.

    HISTORIC BUILDINGS OFFICER - ENPA: I inspected the existing guttering last week. The existing box gutter is lead lined with falls and drips that are in adequate and are causing water to pond. The lead bays are also over long and therefore at risk of splitting. Without major reforming works it is not possible to provide the bay and drip sizes which are recommended in the regulations.

    Using T-Pren joints will allow shorter bay sizes to be used and reduce the risk of further leaks with only minimal change to the building appearance.
