Winning over local planning officers on a controversial city centre site

The challenge

Our client was seeking planning permission for a proposed business development on a brownfield site close to the city centre. This plot had been the subject of several proposed schemes – but the client believed these were of low quality and not deserving of the site.

Charter House Planning was asked to design a scheme that would push the envelope whilst still meeting with council approval.

Our solution

Working closely with a local architect, we put together a strong case to convince the local council that a contemporary architectural design would offer the best solution. This groundwork enabled us to secure full planning permission without any objections. The Salisbury Civil Society applauded the ‘contemporary architecture’ and the ‘sustainable approach’ which they felt was a significant improvement on previous applications.

Project success

Building work is due to commence in late 2017 and the development will transform this neglected part of the city centre.
