Bristol City Centre Redevelopment

TPA is proud to have supported Rengen (Cumberland) Ltd in securing planning permission for the redevelopment of a vacant office building to a mixed use scheme, comprising student accommodation and a fitness gym at basement level. The scheme proposed 86 student beds arranged in 19 cluster flats. No car parking provision was proposed.

The scheme is located in Bristol City Centre within the central Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ). A Residents Parking Scheme (RPS) also in operation on local roads in the area restricts residents of student halls from obtaining a resident’s parking permit.

TPA was brought in further to highway officers initially objecting to the scheme and successfully negotiated various matters, further to the provision of a Transport Statement, Travel Plan with Travel Information Pack, Delivery Management Plan and a Traffic Management Plan which set out how the arrival and departure of students at the beginning and end of each term would be managed. Off-site improvements initially sought by highway officers were negotiated out.

Planning consent granted for dwellings at Wolvershill Road, Banwell

TPA’s Bristol office is proud to have assisted Strongvox Homes in obtaining outline planning consent for 44 dwellings at Wolvershill Road, Banwell.  TPA prepared a Transport Statement demonstrating the accessibility of the site and that the increase in traffic would be immaterial.

TPA also prepared a Non-Motorised User Audit to confirm appropriateness of existing pedestrian infrastructure to accommodate pedestrian movements from the proposed development. The Local Highway Authority had no objections to the application further to detailed negotiations and subject to implementation of a Travel Plan and off-site mitigation to the existing pedestrian network in Banwell.
