Walsingham Planning represented clients in relation to the submission of full planning application for the construction of a temporary Pre-cast Concrete Facility on land at T Berth in Avonmouth Docks. The production facility will support the creation of concrete structures for the construction of power station main cooling towers.
The brief included liaison with key stakeholders including local politicians and the local community. Walsingham Planning was also instrumental in undertaking public relations consultation including the distribution of a newsletter to local residents. Despite the significant scale of development, only a few letters of objection were subsequently received.
Due to the strategically significant nature of Avonmouth Docks, the proposals represented a highly complex project which required detailed technical understanding and close working with the client and project team.
The proposals comprise the construction of a temporary Pre-cast Concrete Production Facility and associated development including a concrete batching plant, cranes, offices, storage areas and parking, loading and unloading facilities. Development is now underway with operations anticipated to begin in late 2017. Walsingham Planning continue to advise the client and have been instructed to secure the discharge of planning conditions.
