In Education, Net Zero

Working with the main contractors Kier Construction, DPP are proud to have achieved full planning permission for this exciting scheme. Designed by Bond Bryan, the partial redevelopment of Trinity Academy Bradford will provide students with high quality teaching facilities, an additional grass pitch area, new MUGA courts, enhanced soft and hard landscaping works and 17% net gain in biodiversity across the site.

Importantly, the new-build teaching block will be net-zero carbon in operation, making use of sustainable measures such as solar panels and triple glazed windows to drastically reduce the amount of carbon-intensive energy required.

DPP provided key strategic advice throughout the full planning application process from initial pre-application advice, arranging of public consultation activities through to managing the planning application and ultimately achieving a delegated planning approval. Any issues that arose during the determination stage were effectively dealt with through clear communication with the Authority ensuring that the application was determined within project timescales. DPP are continuing to work with the project team to discharge planning conditions in advance of construction works commencing in Summer 2024.

Oliver Corbett, Principal Planner at DPP, said:

We are very pleased to have worked with Kier Construction to secure planning permission for the partial redevelopment of Trinity Academy Bradford, which will provide significant benefits to the students and staff of the school as well as the local community of Queensbury. Our team worked diligently throughout the entirety of the application process to resolve any planning issues and we look forward to seeing the project completed in the coming years.
