Urban Vision, on behalf of Salford City Council, has played a key role in supporting the success of the Royal Horticultural Society’s planning application to allow for Salford’s £30 million RHS Garden Bridgewater to go ahead.
The plans outline a restoration of historic grounds at Worsley New Hall in Salford and will see them transformed into a beautiful public space expected to attract visitors from around the region and further afield.
Urban Vision’s role in conjunction with the RHS started at the pre-application stage 18 months ago, where Urban Vision provided guidance and assistance to ensure the application reflected an understanding of the local and national policy framework and allowed for an informed recommendation to be made.
Urban Vision also played the lead role in the assessment of the planning application and the culmination of the process which involved writing a report to the Planning Panel with a recommendation of approval for the project.
As well as utilising Urban Vision’s Planning team, other Urban Vision teams that supported on the project included the Highways and flood risk team as well as air and noise engineers who had a role in assessing the plans to make sure that all aspects of the proposal were covered comprehensively.
Salford City Council’s planning panel recently granted planning permission and the plans were then approved by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government.
