We are pleased to report that planning permission was granted on 1 February 2019, for Tungsten Properties’ mixed use retail and commercial site off Rugby Road in Hinckley. The development is effectively the missing part of the Sketchley Brook scheme. A key part of the planning argument, supported by the work in our Transport Assessment, hinged on demonstrating that the development proposals did not exceed the traffic generation for the site that was associated with the infrastructure improvements put in place at the time of the Sketchley Brook development, thereby avoiding the need for further off-site highway improvements or S106 contributions. Other challenges included developing an appropriate parking and servicing layout to meet the various site constraints.
