Appeal Allowed for Major Housing Development
Thu 06 June 19
Following a convoluted planning process, a Planning Inspector has on behalf of the Secretary of State allowed a planning appeal for demolition of a redundant railway bridge and construction of 22no. houses and 6no. flats with an associated new access road, car parking, landscaping and ground works.
With the input of transport consultant specialists Peter Evans Partnership, it was demonstrated to the Inspector that the development was entirely appropriate and that the appeal should be allowed.
The contemporary style development follows a linear pattern with the housing stretched out along the former railway line. The development is an imaginative use of a redundant site in a sustainable location.
Major Housing and Office Development Approved
Wed 13 March 19
Aspect360 has secured planning approval for another major mixed-use development in Bristol. Located at the former Easton Colliery site, the redevelopment of St Gabriel’s Court comprises a three storey commercial building and 10no. family houses.
In bringing forward the proposals Aspect360 undertook consultation with the local community and managed the input of a number of technical consultants and what in planning terms had a number of constraints to address.
Designed by 105 West Architects, the development represents a significant regeneration of a brownfield site that has been underutilized for many years.

Fri 01 March 19
Following a planning committee approval, Aspect360 Ltd has gained planning permission for a mixed used redevelopment comprising ground floor commercial offices (160sqm) and 6no. 1 and 2-bed partments in a four storey building.

Student Development in Conservation Area
Bartley Street, Bedminster, Bristol
Fri 09 November 18
Planning and Conservation Area Consent for Demolition have today been granted consent for the redevelopment of an industrial site to create a mix of student cluster flats and studio accommodation. The inner-urban site presented a number of challenges due to the proximity of neighbouring buildings and the fact it falls within the Bedminster Conservation Area. Nevertheless, working closely with the project architects and clients, we were able to provide guidance on the issues to address which helped ensure the 8-week target date for a decision was achieved by the Council.
Consent for Conversion of Historic Buildings, Trowbridge
Church Street, Trowbridge
Wed 24 October 18
Working in collaboration with Bath-based architects F W Beresford-Smith & Partners, Aspect360 have managed proposals to help secure Listed Building Consent and a resolution to grant planning permission to convert the former United Church and Community Buildings in the centre of Trowbridge. Discussion are now taking place to finalise the legal agreement and associated planning obligations.
This unusual development comprises nine listed buildings, several of which are to be converted and restored to create a major residential development of 25no. 1 and 2-bed apartments. The redundant church and community buildings had remained empty for a couple of years before the site was sold to clients who intend developing it.
Aspect360 undertook pre-application consultation with the Trowbridge Town Council, gaining their support for the scheme. For the planning and listed building applications, Aspect360 provided a number of reports to address planning, heritage, design, access and planning obligations. Discussions and site meetings then took place at the site with Council officers and Historic England advisers who took a keen interest in the sites future use. Given the complexities of the site, the planning process was dealt with in a positive and proactive manner by those involved which will assist with securing the future of the historic buildings. Other consultants involved with the project included Hillside Trees Ltd (arborculture), Heritage Planning Services (archaeology), Amalgam Landscape (landscape design) and Mann Williams (structural conditions).
