Working alongside BPTW’s architects, our planning team secured permission for the redevelopment of a former industrial backland site, pub and retail unit.
With the proposal including the demolition of a locally listed pub, a number of neighbouring residents strongly objected on the grounds of housing density, proximity of buildings and an over concentration of affordable housing, requiring a strong regeneration case.
BPTW’s primary challenge was creating a convincing case for redevelopment in the eyes of community. We participated in an extensive series of public consultation events to achieve this, working closely with commercial agents to demonstrate that the pub was unviable, with regard to the building condition, location and proximity of other commercial uses. BPTW also advised on a strategy to address the boundary matters concerning residents and responded to a number of detailed Member level concerns that resulted in permission being granted.
