"Working with AWP made the daunting job of achieving change of use much easier and calmer. They have a very professional approach and offer a good medium between the result we wanted to see and the relationship with the planning authority. I would highly recommend and will be seeking their services on the next phase of development."

The Bear Trail

Mid Devon

The Bear Trail is an award winning family attraction in Mid Devon. We helped secure its initial planning permission and subsequently undertook the highway access design.

Working closely with the client and the project architect, Grainge Architects, we prepared a Flood Risk Note and a Highways Note to support the planning application. Our excellent working relationship with Devon County Council Lead Local Flood Authority and Highways Officers enabled quick and practical solutions to be found. Once planning approval was granted by Mid Devon District Council, we prepared designs for the new site access again liaising closely with DCC Highways Officers.

We subsequently helped the Bear Trail get planning permission for its expansion in 2020.

Its good to see The Bear Trail has gone from strength to strength over the last few years.
