Hinckley Site Regeneration

Clarkebond was commissioned by the Tin Hat Regeneration Partnership LLP to provide structural and civil engineering services in support of an outline planning application for the regeneration of the ‘Bus Station Site’ within the existing Hinckley Town Centre.

The retail-led development proposes to regenerate the existing 4Ha site with 27 new-build units, within four blocks, providing of a total combined floor space in excess of 25,000m2 of retail, commercial and entertainment/ leisure facilities.

Clarkebond’s role within the project involved providing structural design support to the architect, and delivering various planning related assessments required to support the outline planning application, including an Environmental Statement, Flood Risk Assessment and Geo-Environmental Assessment. In compiling the Environmental Statement, identified as necessary via a Scoping Opinion submitted by Clarkebond, to the Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council, as required under the Town and Country Planning (Environmental Impact Assessment) (England and Wales) Regulations 1999 as amended, Clarkebond’s role was extended to managing the delivery of additional assessments including an Archaeological and Cultural Heritage Assessment, an Ecological Impacts Assessment, a Lighting Impacts Assessment, a Noise and Vibration Assessment, an Air Quality and Odour Assessment, a Transport Impacts Assessment, a Socio-Economics Assessment and a Visual Impacts Assessment.

The planning application for the proposed development was successful, and the development was granted outline planning approval by the Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council in November 2010.
