RCT Homes Environmental Improvements
Client: RCT Homes
Location: Various sites
Service: Planning consultancy
The Urbanists provided planning services to RCT Homes on the design and implementation of a series of environmental improvement projects throughout the residential estates that it owns. The improvement programme will improve the quality of the public realm and open spaces in the estates, and enhance the quality of life enjoyed by tenants.
To deliver the projects, The Urbanists advised RCT Homes on opportunities to progress works through permitted development and secured planning permission for six improvement projects in residential areas throughout the County Borough. Planning permission for all the projects was obtained quickly without planning conditions, which allowed the permissions to be implemented immediately.
This was achieved by engaging extensively with the Rhondda Cynon Taff County Borough Council to agree the requirements for each application, and working closely with the design team to satisfy the requirements. Many of the environmental improvements have now been delivered, or are in the process of being delivered.
