Green Light for Hotel and Office Development in Chesterfield
Planning Permission has been granted for a hybrid planning application submitted to Chesterfield Borough Council for land at Lockoford Lane, Chesterfield. Alliance Planning, the UK wide planning consultancy, worked as planning advisors for the scheme in conjunction with Mike Harris of Carey Jones Architects and the Client team Colin Cook and Sebastian Perez.
The planning permission is for a mixed use scheme comprising Full consent for a hotel and associated bar, restaurant, multifunctional room, offices and car parking and Outline consent for an Office building.
“It has been fantastic to work on this high quality scheme that Chesterfield Planning Committee were able to support unanimously. We have over 80% success rate in all concluded planning jobs in 2008 and we believe that our reputation for delivering planning permissions remains a fundamental component for why we continue to be asked to provide planning advice across the UK.” comments Gerald Sweeney, Director Birmingham Office.
The scheme was promoted on behalf of Bradbury Hall Developments. The Site lies within the wider regeneration area of Chesterfield and will provide an iconic building at a gateway location and was supported by the regional design review panel OPUN. .
Affordable Housing Application Submitted
The Guildford office has today submitted a planning application for affordable housing to Guildford Borough Council in the village of West Clandon, Surrey. The site is situated in Green Belt land adjacent to the settlement boundary. This Rural Exception Site would deliver much needed affordable housing to the village.
Alliance appointed for Strategic Waste Monitoring Study
Alliance Planning in association with consultancy Beyond Waste have been appointed by the South East England Regional Assembly (SEERA) and the South East Regional Technical Advisory Body for Waste (SERTAB) to prepare an inaugural Regional Strategic Waste Monitoring Report for the South East of England.
The objective of the project is to prepare the first Regional Strategic Waste Monitoring Report for the South East of England. The report will provide a picture of the ‘state of the region’ with regard to waste and its management. All data will be disaggregated and presented by Waste Planning Authority (WPA), to enable the picture for each WPA to be seen within the regional context and to enable WPAs to check the data and use it for planning purposes within their areas.
A key element of the study is to establish a methodology for preparing Regional Strategic Waste Monitoring Reports for future years, based on this first year report.
This is an excellent result for us and a high profile regional project, the budget is not overly substantial but the project will be a good stepping stone for further waste, SEERA and County work.
