PBA was commissioned by the HCA to secure outline planning permission for a residential development at land to the south of Pewterspear Green Road in Stretton, Warrington.
The site was originally acquired by the Commission for New Towns, and then transferred to English Partnerships and subsequently on to the HCA. PBA provided planning consultancy services and led a multidisciplinary team, supported by IBI Group, providing technical advice in relation to transport, noise, utilities, ecology, flood risk and drainage.
PBA worked collaboratively with the Council to demonstrate that the scheme would not result in severe highway impacts and to overcome local opposition. Warrington Borough Council resolved to grant outline planning permission for up to 180 dwellings subject to the signing of a Section 106 Agreement in February 2017.
