Planning challenges

Planning regulation remains a complex challenge which can de-rail projects, with a difficult, protracted process seemingly impossible to negotiate. We're experienced in navigating this maze to achieve timely and effective solutions, finding a focused approach to each unique set of challenges. We think on our feet to keep schemes on track without compromise, wherever there's a way.

Caversham Road is a case in point - on this residential site adjacent to a railway we needed to satisfy everyone from conservation officers and local residents to Network Rail, while meeting high client aspirations. We designed a contemporary scheme which accommodates 18 high quality apartments, ensuring that the building has no negative impacts on its neighbours, while appearing at a scale to complement the character of the local streetscape.
