DLP Planning Ltd are pleased to have secured a full planning permission for Millbrook Proving Ground Ltd, the UK’s leading independent vehicle test, validation and engineering service provider.
DLP worked closely with be1 Architects Ltd to prepare and submit a scheme for an ‘Innovation Centre’ for vehicle development within the proving ground, which will provide circa 700sqm of new B1 floorspace, comprising 3 offices and workshops with communal toilets and marshalling and parking areas.
The proposed ‘Innovation Centre’ is to be constructed using a modern, powder coated steel cladding, of a similar construction to others on the wider MPG site, and has been designed to accommodate the testing of large vehicles such as double decker buses.
Millbrook Proving Ground has been identified by Central Bedfordshire Council as a ‘Safeguarded Key Employment Site’ and as such is seen by the Council as a focal point for future investment.
Be1 Architects will now oversee the construction phase of the project, working alongside a number of other technical specialists to make the plans a reality. The target is to ensure the facility is completed and full operational by summer 2017.

DLP Planning Ltd have successfully secured planning permission to allow a local village supermarket to receive deliveries on Bank Holidays between the hours of 8.00am to 2.00pm.
Securing permission for deliveries on a Bank Holiday was important to our client to enable them to operate efficiently and to compete effectively with other competitors in the area. DLP was able to successfully demonstrate that the proposed Bank Holiday deliveries would not have any detrimental impact on the residential amenity of nearby residential occupiers and would support the continued viability of the store.
This granting of this permission has enabled our client to improve the quality and range of products that they are able to offer to customers on Bank Holidays, which enables them to be more competitive. The proposal also brought the permitted deliveries in line with the store trading hours, enabling them to operate more efficiently as a business.
The permission is great news for our client’s business and also the local community that they serve.
