Thorpe Green Sports Pavillion Project


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.

"What can I say about Chroma Planning and Development other than that they made our dream a reality with their professional, personal and bespoke consultancy for our planning proposal.
We bought a site at auction in the Greenbelt for our award winning judo club but unbeknownst to me and having invested my mum’s pension pot, we were told planning permission would not be possible to develop the site….. In stepped Chroma Planning; they took a proposal that was effectively dead in the water and helped us achieve planning permission within 6 months through their diligent and caring approach that was packed with an incredible knowledge base. They understand intimately the ‘minefield’ that is planning and help you to navigate it with their fantastic communication skills.
I could not recommend them highly enough and will be forever grateful to them for ensuring we have a community judo club thanks to their expertise within the planning industry."
