Firstplan was instructed to submit an application to comprehensively extend and upgrade Westminster House, a prominent gateway building situated adjacent to Richmond Station (a locally listed Building of Townscape Merit) within the Central Richmond Conservation Area. The consented scheme will deliver two new storeys of office floorpsace, the excavation of the basement to create a new gym, a coherent ground floor retail frontage, and upgraded façade. Ecological benefits include the incorporation of two greenwalls, which will assist in creating a welcoming setting for Richmond Station Plaza and town centre as a whole.

Firstplan’s role as planning consultant included leading pre-application discussions, preparing and submitting the application, managing the team of consultants and negotiating with officers through to the grant of planning permission.
