The Design Process

The scheme was submitted for planning in March 2015 and granted planning permission in February 2016. The application was revised during the submission process to incorporate design changes and material changes following outline costing. A positive pre-application process was carried out with the Local Authority to engage in the non-policy compliant aspects of the scheme including the 14m facade to facade distance, potential overlooking, and Passivhaus standard in lieu of renewables.
