Our experts acted on behalf of Future Generation to manage a planning application for a 154 bed purpose built student development scheme.
This involved obtaining pre-application planning advice from the Council, consulting local residents and the design and conservation panel, and working with the project team and architects to refine the scheme design and to gain the positive support required for planning committee. We assisted the applicant by managing the application at post submission stage, and addressing consultations and issues as they arose to help to navigate the application to a positive determination.
This included negotiations with conservation officers over the effects of the development upon the setting of a Grade I listed chapel, and engagement with policy officers to demonstrate that the development would meet the demands of a specific Higher Educational Institution. The scheme recently received a resolution to grant planning permission at planning committee on the 2nd October 2019.
