Excellent result for our client PJK Developments (Walsall) Ltd at Walsall's Planning Committee last Thursday. Members agreed with our argument that the office allocation, dating back to 2012, had no reasonable prospect of coming forward and that applications for alternative uses on the land should be supported, where the proposed use would contribute to meeting an unmet need for development in the area (NPPF: paragraph 120).
The proposal comprises 130 apartments on the former Police Station site on Green Lane, while approximately half of the flats will be for those aged over 55. Residents will have access to the lounge and beautiful communal garden courtyard designed by our in-house Landscape Architects. The scheme promotes sustainable transport and a healthy lifestyle with the provision of generous cycle parking in addition to car parking.
BM3 provided Architecture, Planning, CGI and Landscape services, we’re excited to see the project progress!
We have worked with Lovell, Nuplace, Telford & Wrekin Council and the Wrekin Housing Group to design 329 homes for open market sale, private and affordable rent and Rent to Buy. There will also be a new Extra Care facility for older people and those living with dementia.
The landscape strategy includes a central park space with high quality play facilities an orchard and several other incidental open spaces that will contribute to the character of the development and help the scheme integrate with its naturalistic surroundings. Properties within the development will have PV panels and electric car charging points, with a number of properties being delivered to ‘Future Homes’ standards, helping tenants to reduce their fuel bills and at the same time reducing the scheme’s carbon footprint.
Works are due to commence in Summer 2021 and continue until early 2025.
Delighted to be part of this project for #Tamworth Cornerstone HA at Woodhouse Lane. 12 one bedroom flats have been built for young people between the age of 16 and 25 who are at risk of being #homeless. Great partnership with E. Manton, @ARKConsultLtd #housing #bm3news https://t.co/z5Zf1GwT5g

BM3 initiated an internal design competition for all of its staff, which would explore the day to day impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on our homes.
The purpose of the competition was to provide ideas for how new housing and master planning could be designed to help people cope better with similar situations and related issues such as lockdown, food shortages, health and wellbeing, home working and cohabiting with extended families. 12 teams entered the competition, including groups made up of staff from both studios.
The judges were Rebecca Smith, of the RIBA, together with two of BM3’s Directors, John Jones and James Boulter.
The winning design focused on giving occupants a variety of amenity spaces that sat alongside the main rear garden. The design also includes a garden, outhouse/quarantine space, and a play area/office. Congratulations to the winning team: BM3’s Jay Rajpra, HoLim Yung, Tasos Siakotos.
A huge well done to all involved and a very special thank you to our guest judge!
