Planning consultancy; Major mixed use town centre regeneration scheme
Client: Bolton Regeneration Ltd (BCEGI/Midia)
Hive are instructed as planning consultant by Bolton Regeneration Limed (a joint venture between BCEGI and Granite Turner), in partnership with Bolton Council on the redevelopment of the Crompton Place Shopping Centre in the heart of Bolton town centre. This is a truly transformational project for the town that will see the under-performing shopping centre replaced with a scheme comprising of a wide range of uses including retail, restaurants, cafes, residential, offices, flexible workspace, hotel, leisure, exhibition space and high quality areas of public realm.
This was an extremely complex planning submission and through regular dialogue with the client, planning officers and other key stakeholders, Hive ensured that any matters of detail or clarifications were dealt with quickly and efficiently. Hive worked particularly closely with the architects, Chapman Taylor, and this relationship was key to ensuring that the clients needs were met in full.
Planning permission was secured for the scheme in 2020.
