We were instructed by Canada Life in relation to the proposed redevelopment of an existing retail unit on Peascod Street in Windsor to provide a reduced retail unit and an 80 bed hotel.
We undertook a scoping exercise with the Highway Authority to ascertain the scope of supporting information required for the planning application, during which we successfully argued that the proposed development would not result in the need for a Transport Assessment.
We worked together with Accord Architects to prepare a site layout which met the requirements of both our Client and the local authority. In particular we focused on the treatment of Mellor Walk, which was to become the main entrance for the proposed hotel, and the existing service yard.
A planning application was submitted and supported by a Transport Statement, Travel Plan, Construction Traffic Management Plan, and a Delivery and Servicing Plan. The planning committee subsequently voted in favour of granting the proposal a resolution to grant permission.
