Our proposals for Parkside passed detailed public scrutiny via the democratic planning process and then a government-mandated public inquiry.

To secure our planning permission we had to demonstrate not just the planning case for the development, but also how we would go about delivering the project in a way that mitigates the impacts of developing the scheme.

With consent now in place work is starting on delivering on the scheme’s promise of more than 1,300 jobs, £2.2m a year in new rateable income and an uplift to the local economy of £80m a year.
