Corbin Business Park
dha transport provided sustainable transport planning advice to secure planning permission for a c. 1,600 sq m extension to an existing office building in the Kent countryside. The extension represented a 200% increase in floorspace, allowing GForces, a successful web design and management company to expand, and employ up to 60 new staff, and establish the GForces Academy.
In order to demonstrate sustainability, notwithstanding the rural location, a full Travel Plan was provided to support and promote sustainable staff and visitor travel to and from the site. A package of speed reduction measures were also secured for the site locale, which will benefit both the business and its neighbours.
A lengthy process of pre-application consultation with Officers and local stakeholders ensured that full planning permission was secured at Committee as an exception and departure from Local Plan policy owing to the special economic circumstances of the case.
