Preparation and management of a full planning application, with listed building consent, to establish a new LEP-funded centre for engineering at UEA Campus, which will result in the establishment of a dedicated UEA School of Engineering in 2021.
What we did
We are in the process of managing a planning application for the UEA, to establish Productivity East, a new centre for engineering. Engineering courses at UEA currently fall within the School of Mathematics, so Productivity East seeks to provide a consolidated centre for engineering students at UEA, in tandem with the establishment of a dedicated School of Engineering in 2021
The site is located within the Grade II Teaching Wall, therefore we have assisted UEA in navigating the historic sensitivities of the site, to deliver a planning consent which suits the requirements of the end-users, whilst also respecting and enhancing the historic fabric of the surroundings
We are close to securing planning permission and listed building consent
We have navigated complex planning issues around heritage impact, design and biodiversity, using our close working relationship with Norwich City Council to deliver a planning consent which meets UEA’s requirements
