"Chris Yalden took the reins of this project from the very beginning, mitigating the flood risk in a critical drainage area was always going to be key to the success of this project. Chris has orchestrated the design and liaison with the various consultees throughout and without Chris’ ideas and tenacity we would not have gained this planning consent. The team Chris has had around him have dealt masterfully with the Highways and Public Rights of Way issues bringing together the full package. I am pleased that Devonshire Homes are retaining AWP to complete the final detailed technical approvals."

Happy New Year everyone.

It was a hectic last couple of weeks before Christmas at AWP Towers as we managed to submit planning applications for a number of large schemes including:

Royal Brunswick Park, North London. We helped long-standing client Comer Homes submit an outline application for a new residential development of 1,200 homes and a new secondary school on the site of the current London Borough of Barnet Council offices. This month's image is of one of the attractive areas of public open space that will be provided by this scheme masterplaned by Plus Architecture.

Westbury. We provided engineering input to support an outline planning application for up to 300 dwellings on a 55-acre site, located on the north western edge of Westbury for client Square Bay. In parallel, a detailed application was made for the relocation of the existing Westbury Sailing Club with a new club house, dinghy park and parking.  

We were also pleased to see a couple of tricky smaller schemes receive planning approval. Ian and Alex both overcame highways objections for proposed developments at High Bullenand Rockbeare respectively.  

Its only a week into 2016, but we've been delighted to be appointed on a number of interesting new projects. We will update our team experiencesection of the website with details in due course.

And finally for this month's news, we're pleased to announce the following promotions in the AWP New Year's Honours List. Congratulations to Pete, Graham, Rodin, Dan, Matt, Jakeand Jon.
