Planning specialists have secured planning permission to relocate a helicopter landing area at a private residence within a remote village in Warwickshire, creating a safer flight path and improved residential amenity for local residents.
The planning experts, from multi-skilled consultancy WYG, have been through extensive negotiations with the Local Planning Authority, English Heritage and Garden History Society to gain approval for the relocation of an existing helicopter landing area and proposed new hangar in Radway Village.
Will Thompson, Associate Director, WYG Planning & Design, said: “This planning application required full engagement with key stakeholders to ensure we had the best outcome for everyone involved.
“The innovative design successfully integrates the new hangar building, landing area and landscaping proposals in a sensitive location which is within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a Registered Park & Garden of Special Historic Interest,” he added.
WYG also provided the Bat Survey report which accompanied the planning application.
The client who commissioned WYG for this project, said: “I would like to thank the team at WYG for all the diligent work which resulted in securing planning permission. The thorough and methodical approach won the day and I thank them all.”
Work is expected to start later this year following approval of detailed design.
