Bell Cornwell has assisted Stuart Partners Limited in securing full planning permission for a development comprising a 64-bedroom care home for the elderly, a medium-sized retail building, a seven-unit office block and 250 space Park and Change.
The site forms part of the wider Old Park Farm urban expansion scheme, which the Exeter office also worked on and includes 750 new homes. Therefore, it was crucial for this development to be sensitive to the nearby and surrounding homes, as well as facilitating an access to a new Free School and nursery, which is being developed on the adjoining land.
We negotiated with officers to achieve a solution that was acceptable to the Council and move the application forward for the client. We provided detailed analysis in response to issues raised and all technical matters including planning policy, design, employment generation and landscape and drainage, amongst many others. It was Bell Cornwell’s ability to effectively project manage and navigate such a diverse range of ‘in principle’ and technical issues that lead to a successful outcome.
