Working for Tungsten Properties and with Pegasus Group, ADC Infrastructure provided highways advice to support the successful application for an employment unit at Oakhurst Business Park in Southwater, West Sussex.
The employment unit’s use class was flexible for both B1c or B8 use. ADC produced a Transport Statement which included evidence to show that the unit could operate if it was B1c or B8 use and that the parking at the site could accommodate either of these use classes. We also undertook vehicle tracking to show large delivery vehicles moving in and out of the access. We have now been instructed to provide a Travel Plan to discharge one of the planning conditions.
* update to post on 14 December 2018 * Charterpoint Senior Living’s 70 bedroom care home on Grantham Road in Bingham was approved by Rushcliffe Borough Council on 23 May 2019. The application, on the former police station site, sought to overturn a refusal for a previous proposal by another company that was dismissed at appeal. Our Transport Statement supported the application. After car parking assessments, it was the negotiations about upgrading bus stops that was most testing.
The emerging masterplan presented at Wednesday’s public consultation, prepared by Leonard Design Associates on behalf of Harworth, is shown below. Further information can be found by following the link https://ironbridgeregeneration.co.uk/
The event was reported in the shropshirestar.
Leicestershire County Council have approved their planning application for the Melton Mowbray Distributor Road (MMDR). The northern and eastern bypass of Melton Mowbray has an important interface with work we are carrying out on behalf of Davidsons Developments. Junction 6 on Burton Road, at the southern end of the bypass, is common to the southern link road that is part of the Southern Sustainable Neighbourhood. Approval of the MMDR is therefore a very helpful step towards delivering the southern link road, and the development it enables. More detail available here.
How’s that for screen support – presentation, industrial style, by Stuart Ashton and Claire Biddle of Harworth Group.
Yesterday was spent in the former pump house of the original Ironbridge power station, made presentable by some very hard work by Harworth’s team, and a fantastic location on the banks of the River Severn. In the morning, stakeholders were invited to an update session. In the afternoon, the public were invited to see the current masterplan and provide their comments and questions. Public consultation par excellence.
US fashion giant VF Corporation, which owns brands such as Vans, North Face, Timberland and Dickies, is set to take 579,000sqft of space at Mountpark Bardon. VF Corporation was established in 1899 and turns over £9.2bn a year, operating in 170 countries and employing 70,000 people. Mountpark Bardon is a 145 acre distribution centre at Victoria Road in Coalville. We helped gain outline consent for 1.2m sqft of B2/B8 use on the site a couple of years ago, completed the detailed design of the access roundabout, since built by Winvic, and have recently assisted with the reserved matters application to ensure VF Corporation’s needs can be satisfied. Another step in the journey complete.
Working with Marchini Curran Associates, we have helped gain planning consent for this new primary care facility for the King Edwards Medical Group in the London Borough of Barking. It will provide seven consulting rooms and an associated pharmacy. The development provides clinical rooms for GPs, nurses and associated support staff. Also located on the site are 24 new high-quality apartments accessed independently from St Margarets. Our work included the assessment of local transport modes, ambulance tracking, and the adequacy of the limited car parking in this highly sustainable location.
