Boyer Student Success at Alexander House in Cardiff

19th December 2017
By Chloe Jones

Boyer secured a successful resolution to grant planning permission subject to signing a s106 Agreement from Cardiff City Council’s Planning Committee last week.

The proposal was for the demolition of existing office building and redevelopment of site to provide 213 No. student bedrooms in 3 No. blocks (3-5 storeys in height), a flexible mix of commercial (A1/A2/A3/B1a/D1) uses in two ground floor units in the central block (Block B), together with car parking, landscaping and associated infrastructure at Alexander House, Cardiff.

Despite objections from neighbouring retail operators and concerns raised by the Council’s Economic Development Officer and Highways Team, the application for Alexander House was recommended for approval by the Case Officer. This recommendation was agreed by members at Planning Committee last week. Boyer’s involvement has been from the beginning on this project.

We advised the client on the prospects of achieving planning permission, as well as the strategy for the preparation of Pre-Application Consultation (PAC) process and submission of the full planning application. Following the applications submission, Boyer liaised with the Council, Statutory Consultees and Co-Consultants to secure a positive outcome.
