Industrial Site Eco Regeneration
Bentley Works, Doncaster
Bentley Works in Doncaster is a large, 8-hectare urban site, currently occupied by an engineering company. To maximise the value of the land, DPP has been advising Skanska’s progressive redevelopment of the site for over 6 years. Permission has recently been granted for modern engineering and office facilities and new residential development.
Strategic advice includes local plan representations; project management; housing and employment land review, general planning advice; formulating planning applications and associated documents.
DPP’s extensive community consultation exercise included distributing targeted information to local residents and mounting a detailed and informative public exhibition helped secure a successful outcome. The redevelopment of the previously industrial site now includes 80 new homes. DPP has forged strong links with Doncaster Council, as well as gaining local support for the residential scheme.
The professional and proactive approach of the DPP team ensured that we successfully secured planning permission for a key development site. The detailed planning knowledge that DPP demonstrated, combined with their local presence was paramount to delivering the scheme on programme. Their continued support throughout the process has been invaluable!Development Manager, Skanska UK Ltd
