Planning applications by Sophie Nash

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

We have now submitted our planning applications for the Westonbirt Project! It’s been a frantic few days, with several long supporting documents and reports flying through our emails for final tweaks and approvals. It’s quite a relief to finally have reached this big milestone with fingers-crossed for approval at the end of the summer, if all goes to plan.

 
The project has been split into three applications; one outline for Propagation, two separate full applications including the Welcome Building, Downs Restoration and Education & Learning Building. 

 
The next big step for us, as a project team, is to complete all the documents we need to send to HLF and ultimately complete the second round application. This will happen if and when we get planning approval for our proposals sometime after September this year.
