OUR RECENT PROJECTS
THORPE GREEN SPORTS PAVILION
We were involved in the successful granting of planning permission on behalf of Core Judo Coaching for the demolition of an existing sports pavilion and the erection of a new two storey replacement sports facility in the Green Belt.
The proposals facilitated the provision of a new Dojo and wider sports facility for an important community Judo Club.
Given the sites Green Belt location it was necessary to prepare a case demonstrating that ‘very special circumstances’ existed to warrant a departure from Green Belt policy. There were also planning issues associated with Floor Risk and Ecology that were necessary to overcome during the pre-application and determination stage.
The case was successfully made for the provision of an enlarged building on the Site and planning permission was subsequently granted via delegated decision.
Planning permission was granted for the provision of a side and rear extension to an existing residential property in Brislington, Bristol.
Work included providing advice on permitted development rights and making a case for the suitability of the proposed extension works based on a consideration of all planning matters and research on local precedents.
The construction team were planned to start and so we had to work diligently and collaboratively with the Council to ensure planning permission was granted in time to allow the construction to begin. Our collaborative and efficient approach resulted in planning permission successfully being granted 4 weeks ahead of the Council’s determination date.
Working on an exciting project in South Wales for the conversion of derelict farm buildings to usable residential and holiday home accommodation. Advising separately on the potential provision of a dwelling on green field land. The project deals with aspects of ecology, rural economy, provision of needed homes, diversification of agricultural buildings. It will be exciting to see this one through the planning process to secure a high quality development for the clients and much needed regeneration of old unused buildings.
