Rochester Police Station Redevelopment
dha planning secures permission for the redevelopment of the former Rochester Police station site in Kent to provide 45 No. new homes.
dha planning obtained planning consent for the redevelopment of the former Rochester Police station site in Kent to provide 45 No. new homes, including a mix of houses and apartments. The site had an extant outline permission, however with the desire to change the number of units proposed and thus the density, a full planning application was submitted.
dha worked with Jones Homes and Britch Associates architects, to prepare a scheme in liaison with officers at Medway Council. Whilst the site is outside of a Conservation Area, its proximity to it and the more historic parts of Rochester meant that a traditional approach was taken with regards to design, echoing Georgian and Edwardian building forms.
dha prepared the Design and Access Statement and Planning Statement, reviewed drawings, and also provided urban design advice, preparing site analysis drawings and mood boards, which helped influence the scheme. dha transport also provided input into the highways improvements and parking numbers.
dha also presented the scheme to Members to garner support, and ensured close consultation with urban design officers at Medway Council.The scheme was recommended approval by Officers and approved unanimously at Committee.
