Ringley were appointed to carry out a rooftop development feasibility study. Following are consideration of the site and buildings, initial designs and documents were brought forward for pre-app negotiations and refined for full plans submission.
The submitted scheme took into account all pre-application feedback and recommended for approval by the council as it conformed to all local and national guidelines and was deemed by planning officers to enhance the character of the area.
Despite the positive report and recommendation for approval, the council's development committee voted to refuse the application. An appeal is pending.
Should the appeal be successful, it is planned for Ringley's to be retained to carry out the detailed design work, building regulations submission and project management of the rooftop scheme.
