Prince to use PPG 7 rule for new home
Prince Charles is set to take advantage of the AJ's recent PPG 7 campaign victory by building a new country house.
The Prince has appointed Classicist Craig Hamilton to design a 1,000m 2 ' Soane-style' house on Duchy of Cornwall land in the Harewood End Country Estate, Herefordshire.
It is expected that the Prince will take advantage of the clause's retention when the planning application for the house - widely rumoured to be for Prince William - is submitted later this year.
David Curtis, the Prince's agent in the estate, said the PPG 7 clause was important for the full planning application.
'We made mention of the PPG 7 clause in the outline planning application and, although this is not a fully fledged PPG 7 house, it is important to winning permission, ' he said.
