Recent planning successes:

  • A mixed use development of 255 dwellings, a GP surgery, a Community Hall and an element of employment space on greenfield land to the north of Stratton Road, Bude, Cornwall for client South West Strategic Developments was unanimously approved by Cornwall Council. A supplementary application for a single-form entry primary school as part of the wider masterplan was also approved.
  • In Exeter an application for a 127 bed student accommodation block at Quintana Gate was approved by Exeter City Council.
  • Three residential schemes in Hampshire for Southcott Homes including 120 dwellings in Bishops Waltham and smaller developments in Winterslow and Southampton were all recently approved.

We undertook our normal suite of engineering works to help secure all of the above planning permissions.

We have been working with Cavanna Homes on various phases of their Yannons Farm development in Paignton for a number of years. It's a challenging site with some tricky engineering issues to overcome, but our design team led by Rodin has recently received this excellent feedback (on the right of this page) about their involvement.

So what is the image above for this month's news update? Bonus points to all of you who correctly identified this as a Battery Energy Storage Facility. We were asked to prepare a FRA to support a planning application for a site in Surrey.

And did we mention our new website? No, oh well, that must be in next month's news then.

  • "Following a lengthy meeting with the Council we were given just a few days to revise the drawings and return them to the Case Officer. AWP expertly rose to the challenge and hit the deadline, which enabled the application to go to Planning Committee four weeks in advance of the project programme. . . . A great result."
