Firstplan acted on behalf of the developer across a number of applications for this site, first helping to secure the principle of an infill development to the rear of the site, and subsequently securing permission for a mixed-use residential and retail / office scheme. This involved extensive negotiation and crafting a case to successfully secure permission for a residential-led scheme on a designated priority employment site. Finally, we secured consent for a full-width roof addition across both old and new buildings on the site, adding an additional 2 flats to the proposals. The Council objected to the principle of this additional storey on heritage and design grounds, but Firstplan constructed a compelling Statement of Case and were successful in winning this additional storey at appeal, helping to unlock the full potential of this site for our client.
