Pegasus Group prepared and submitted an application for the demolition of a former school and ancillary buildings to erect 21 no. dwellings, on behalf of Cotswold Homes.
This application involved several disciplines within Pegasus Group in order to prepare a comprehensive application submission. This included an Open Space Assessment, Affordable Housing Statement and Heritage reports on Archaeology and Built Heritage, as well as a Written Scheme of Investigation.
There was a significant amount of opposition to the proposal from local residents, and objections raised by the Conservation Officer, which resulted in the application going to Committee for determination.
Pegasus Group worked together with Cotswolds Homes and PR Consultant, Conversation PR, to engage with local residents, including holding a local event to present and discuss the proposals.
As a result of the consultation, a scheme to provide commemorative public art to remember the 100 year history of the school was developed.
At Committee the application was approved unanimously.
