We are delighted to announce that Egstow Park in Clay Cross has gained planning approval. The mixed development consists of five commercial buildings, totalling 46,000 sq ft, a 2,100 sq ft drive-through restaurant, and a 3,730 sq ft subterranean office unit. The site used to be part of the former Clay Cross Foundry / Biwater Site, historically associated with industrial use, and is allocated within the local authority masterplan for employment use.
The units have been designed to blend well with the street scene, using a simple material palette, taking cues from the surrounding buildings. The topography has helped to shape the architectural design, ensuring the height of the development to the street frontage is not overwhelmingly dominant to the residential properties opposite. The scheme will also feature a high-quality landscaping scheme.
In addition, the scheme incorporates sustainability measures aimed at mitigating climate change. These include the sustainable design and construction of the buildings and the incorporation of renewable energy sources, although specific details are yet to be confirmed.
This development will not only enhance the local area but also generate employment opportunities for the community.
Planning support was provided by Stainton Planning and secured approval through delegated powers. The client is delighted to have achieved this result.
C+A Design provided architectural design and visualisation services for the project and looks forward to collaborating with Roe Development during the construction phases. Construction is due to start immediately, with completion within 12 months.
