DLP Planning Ltd. has successfully secured full planning permission at committee for a new Industrial unit to support the expansion of TRS Roofing Limited in Westerleigh, South Gloucestershire. Given its Green Belt location and various objections this involved significant negation with the Case Officer and alterations to deliver a scheme which was considered both attractive to the client and acceptable by the planning officer and later Council Members when considering its impact on the openness of the greenbelt.
Through our negotiations, working with GSH Architects we were able to deliver a scheme which was larger in volume (albeit one building rather than two) than the original proposals submitted. Our approach focused on emphasising the importance of this application to support a rural business and strong rural economy. Also highlighting how the introduction of the building could help rationalise the site and through careful design allow the business to grow whilst not resulting in significant harm to the character or appearance of the area.
