Lagan College

Proposed extension and alterations to Lagan College to replace existing temporary accommodation. Included associated external playing pitches/courts, landscaping and amended parking and traffic circulation arrangements.

Issues Encountered

  • Countryside Location
  • Potential visual impact
  • Ecology issues
  • Traffic issues
  • Tight timescale for permission to be achieved

Our Involvement

As part of a Public/Private Partnership, we provided the planning and lobbying consultancy services on a multi-disciplinary bid team, which was headed by the construction body GRAHAM.

We project managed the pre-application discussions and planning aplication process as well as pro-actively lobbied elected representatives at Westminster, the Assembly and Council levels to help maximise support for the project and to urge the Department to approve the application as quickly as possible to ensure work could commence on site before the new school term.

Planning permission was subsequently achieved within 4 months from submission.
