Ahoy there! Those of you that have been following the story of Challis Island will know that our client had to apply for retrospective planning permission for the development in Cambridgeshire.
Yesterday we were informed that the application was successful, so Challis Island is officially here to stay.
Cllr Nick Wright, South Cambridgeshire District Council’s cabinet member for planning and economic development, said: “This has been a very interesting and unique application as it is not often you have someone build a pirate island – let alone this far from the sea.”
All of the parties involved are very happy that permission was granted, although we were always very confident from the outset. We worked closely on the planning application with our partners at SCM – an Architectural Design & Build firm.
With this ruling we are now able to reveal the photos of the themed interior design for the various buildings on the island. As with the rest of the island the interiors and furniture are completely bespoke and were designed and handmade by ourselves in our Northamptonshire workshop. Inside the buildings you will find a bespoke pirate desk and chair, a galleon bed and pirate captain’s armchairs to name a few.
Check out the gallery on the Challis Island page here to see all the photos. We promise you won’t be disappointed.
