Reserved matters application relating to outline development of 490 homes, health and social care centre, and primary school.
Frenchay Hospital, Bristol
We were instructed to coordinate the discharge of outline planning conditions, re-negotiation of S106 matters and the preparation of reserved matters applications for the redevelopment of the Frenchay Hospital site in Bristol. The hospital buildings are located within the grounds of a Georgian Mansion, referred to as Frenchay Park House, which is a Grade II Listed Building, and included in the Gazeteer of Historic Parks and Gardens in Avon. Furthermore, the site falls within the Frenchay Conservation Area.
These designations therefore presented a constraint to the site's development in relation to design features and respecting the character of the local area. We have been successfully negotiating the design elements of the first phase reserved matters application which has resulted in the creation of some contemporary designs being presented at the key vista points, resulting in juxtaposition between old and new, repositioning the school on the masterplan layout to create a more coherent, legible form of development, and successfully discharging the outline conditions for the application to allow the reserved matters to be submitted.
The first reserved matters application for 88 dwellings was permitted in August 2016 and we have now submitted the second reserved matters application for 127 dwellings, public open space and associated infrastructure which is currently awaiting determination.
