The Project

As retained planning consultants to BP International Limited, we were appointed to obtain detailed planning permission for the latest re-development phase of the BP International Centre for Business & Technology (ICBT) Site. The scheme comprised a new 10,000 sqm 4-storey building and associated parking spaces. A fast track delivery programme was required to enable the transfer of BP staff from locations in the UK and overseas.

Our Solutions

We provided planning advice to BP International Limited and project managed the entire planning process. This included a presentation to the Chief Executive and Chief Planning Officer at Spelthorne Borough Council, pre application discussions, public engagement and co-ordination of the design team.

The Outcome

We secured planning permission only ten weeks after submission, without the imposition of any Section 106 planning obligations or pre-commencement conditions. We have been retained by BP International Limited to provide advice on the ongoing planning strategy for this Site.
