Acting as planning consultant we helped develop the proposals for a new High School in Didsbury (South Manchester), which is being delivered by the Laurus Trust under the free school programme.
Our initial involvement was helping our client, BAM Construction win the tender then working closely with the Trust and other members of the design team.
Subsequently as part of the planning process we participated in extensive community consultation, attended several pre-application meetings with Manchester City Council and co-ordinated the application package.
During determination we worked with specialists to address local concerns on ecology and access. We are now assisting BAM to discharge planning conditions. In parallel we were also appointed by BAM to act as planning consultant for the Ryecroft School (in Tameside) for the Laurus Trust.
