RS Architecture has won planning permission for a boathouse for Durham Amateur Rowing Club. The project is a two-storey extension to the existing boat store at Green Lane in the flood plain of the River Wear, which lies in the Durham Green Belt and Durham City conservation area. The proposal drew strong objections from the Environment Agency, but strong support from the local planners. However, the agency's objection was overcome by means of incorporating an early warning flood protection system.
