Having successfully secured the allocation of the Anglian Business Park site in Royston for housing in the emerging North Herts Local Plan, JB Planning Associates were subsequently instructed to submit a hybrid application seeking part outline planning permission and part full planning permission to deliver up to 67 dwellings.
The application followed detailed discussions with the Council and JB Planning Associates coordinated a team of consultants to prepare the necessary technical work to support the proposal. JB Planning Associates managed the scheme as it progressed through the planning application process including responding to queries raised by the Council and consultees and negotiating a viable level of affordable housing provision.
The proposed apartment blocks, forming part of the detailed element of the application, adopt a contemporary design with references to vernacular domestic materials including the use of gaunt bricks, allowing them to remain compatible with the surrounding context which comprises a mix of residential and industrial buildings.
The application has been granted planning permission by the Council’s Planning Committee subject to the completion of the Section 106 agreement.
