Hitchcock's Business Park

Mid Devon

Following on from work we'd previously undertaken for client Richard Persey on a couple of residential schemes, we were asked to provide engineering input for this proposed Business Park on a brownfield site near Uffculme in Mid Devon.

The proposed development is for approximately 12,000 sqm of B1, B2 and B8 employment use. A comprehensive planning application was submitted covering existing buildings with extant permissions and a number of new commercial units. It is likely that the build rate of the development will be spread over a number of  years depending on market conditions, but work has already started on the approved units as can be seen from the photograph above.

We prepared a Flood Risk Assessment (including a surface water strategy), a Foul Drainage Strategy and a Transport Statement to support a detailed planning application for the proposed Business Park.

The overall scheme received planning permission in November 2014 and a number of smaller detailed permissions have subsequently been granted. We are pleased to be continuing our involvement in this project by undertaking the engineering work supporting these applications and by undertaking the infrastructure design and are currently working on a planning applciation for Phase 2.
