SF Planning would like to congratulate their client, Cheltenham-based developer Cape Homes, on recently winning the prestigious Regeneration Award at the Believe in Gloucester Awards 2017, for their development project at Albion House, Southgate Street, Gloucester.
Albion House, along with the adjacent retail unit, had long been on the Council’s regeneration hitlist having been empty for up to 15 years. As a prominent Grade II Listed building, given its long term vacancy and poor state of repair, it was also considered a high priority building on the Council’s Buildings at Risk register.
Working alongside Clive Petch Architects, SF Planning are proud to have helped to secure planning permission and listed building consent in early 2016 for the conversion of Albion House, for the replacement of the adjacent retail unit with an apartment block and for the creation of mews houses at the rear. In total, the development provided 22 dwellings within this sustainable city centre location.
Cape Homes undertook the development during 2016, with grant funding assistance through the Council’s Southgate Street Townscape Heritage Initiative. The development was completed in early 2017 and all units are now occupied.
