Thursday saw Harworth Group’s public consultation event as over 560 people attended the former Ironbridge power station to hear early thoughts on how it might be redeveloped. It follows an earlier workshop with key stakeholders who began to form the vision for how the site might be regenerated. ADC Infrastructure were present to ask and answer questions to try and find the wins for the local community. You can read more on the website: https://ironbridgeregeneration.co.uk/
We are delighted to announce that last night, ADC Infrastructure was awarded Insider’s East Midlands Property Dinner 2018 Client Advisor of the Year. Needless to say we are all chuffed to bits!
The Ironbridge power station ceased electricity generation in 2015 and was bought by Harworth Group in June 2018. The 350 acre site abuts the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site, and comprises the power station and its associated uses, such as the former social club and its sports pitches beside the River Severn, rail siding, and waste tips. ADC Infrastructure assisted Harworth in their due diligence and are excited to be involved in the ongoing redevelopment plans. This week that means an all-day workshop with local stakeholders to begin to form the initial proposals.
As a follow up to our news of 6 April 2018, Mansfield District Council yesterday issued the decision notice giving Harworth Group outline planning consent for 400 houses on their site at Sookholme Lane in Market Warsop. Since April we have resolved S106 negotiations and commented on planning conditions. And so ends this stage of work, almost four years since our initial access feasibility studies. We look forward to helping any housebuilders thinking of purchasing the site to understand the transport obligations. Masterplan by Pegasus Group.
At the second time of asking, following tweaks to the architecture, Nottingham City Council have approved Bildurn’s office proposal. Our work included a Transport Statement that focussed on access to the basement car park and servicing arrangements along the pedestrian priority Station Street. We also prepared a Travel Plan, and a Construction Management Plan to examine how construction vehicles would be controlled, and be able to deliver and turn around, without unduly conflicting on the street cafes and other public realm.

Gedling Borough Council have approved the outline planning application for 12 new houses and a 64-bedroom residential care home on the site of the existing Eden Lodge Care Home in Bestwood. The proposals include the demolition of the existing care home to allow for the construction of three and four-bedroom houses and a new state of the art care facility that will include a cinema, hairdresser, and café. Our Transport Statement grappled with car parking and layout issues.
Mansfield District Council has granted planning consent for a 10,000sqm employment unit accessed via Anglia Way in Mansfield. The new warehouse will be occupied by Linney (the world-class, multichannel marketing services group) to allow expansion of their existing operations on the industrial estate. Our Transport Assessment examined the traffic impacts at five off-site junctions, taking account of the cumulative picture given other permitted developments in the area.
