Regeneration : Brunswick Neighbourhood Regeneration PFI
Client : Solutions 4 Brunswick (S4B)
The scheme involved the selective demolition and clearance of poor quality former residential units to allow for the phased redevelopment of the Brunswick Neighbourhood, including the creation of 444 new dwellings and the refurbishment of 839 homes.
Over the last eight years PBA have provided detailed planning advice to S4B, the winning consortium charged with delivering the Brunswick PFI scheme. During the course of the project we have worked closely with S4B and MCC to shape a robust planning strategy and approach to regenerating the area. Our involvement began at the pre-application stage, following which in 2013 we managed a full planning application for the regeneration of Brunswick. Since the approval of this Masterplan in 2013 we have advised Galliford Try on planning matters relating to the delivery of new build housing (market and social) and Mears with regard to housing refurbishment (low rise, medium rise and high rise dwellings). We have worked closely with architect Buttress and landscape architect Gillespies in order to discharge planning conditions and secure consent for variations and accommodate changes to the proposals, in April 2018 approval was secured for a revised masterplan. PBA have established and maintained close working relationships with MCC Planning and Regeneration Officers throughout the delivery of the project. We continue to undertake condition discharge applications and condition monitoring on behalf of both Galliford Try and Mears, as well as providing S4B with detailed planning guidance as and when required.
