HPP have secured planning permission for two contemporary dwellings at Harp Hill, Cheltenham.
The site is located on the edge of the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty so there was a necessity for a high quality design. HPP considered that a contemporary design response was required and worked closely with Coombes Everitt Architects and Davies Landscape architects to develop a scheme that responded positively to its surroundings.
HPP have secured planning permission for the redevelopment of a site to form 95 dwellings, 385sqm of retail and cafe floorspace and a new waterfront pedestrian and cycle path. The site forms part of a wider waterside regeneration zone in Nottingham City and the proposal is to kick start regeneration in the area.
The scheme was particularly complex given the constraints and viability issues which had to be resolved.

HPP has been shortlisted from a strong field of candidates for the second annual Planning Awards; Planning Awards 2015. The awards recognise excellence by all players in the planning system such as local authorities, consultants, developers and lawyers. HPP have been shortlisted for an award in the Stakeholder Engagement in Planning category. HPPs submission for this particular category included reference to the Community Partnership Board, which is a community liaison group initiated, formulated and coordinated by HPP. This Board was influential during the preparation and consideration of a proposed development at a former RAF base near Nottingham. The Board was considered to be an effective medium through which to communicate ideas and proposals and receive comments from the local community through the formulation of the design process. The CPB included local residents, Parish, District and County Councillors and other interested parties. The local community responded well to the CPB as it allowed them direct access and communication with the developer and the LPA.
The Awards ceremony will be held on Tuesday,17th November at the Royal Society of Medicine, London, W1G 0AE.

Planning permission has been secured for the erection of 40 dwellings on a greenfield site at Bidford on Avon. Initially refused by the Local Planning Authority on three grounds, the Council decided to concede their case. The Planning Inspectorate was therefore obliged to consider the objections to the scheme raised by the local residents.
HPP convinced the Inspector that, notwithstanding the effect of the proposal on the character and appearance of the area and the loss of agricultural land, given the matters that weight in its favour including the absence of a five-year housing land supply, the appeal scheme would be sustainable development.
