Scott Brownrigg receives planning permission for the redevelopment of Garth Hill College



On Thursday 16 October, Bracknell Forest Planning and Highways Committee resolved to grant planning permission for the redevelopment of Garth Hill College.  The project has seen Scott Brownrigg's planning and architecture teams working closely together for several months as the proposals were progressed from stage C through to the detailed planning application phase.

Particularly pleasing was the fact that despite being a major application the decision was made in just over eight weeks, due largely to the constructive pre-application discussions that were held prior to submission.  The proposals, which are part of the Government's BSF One School Pathfinder programme, will allow for the replacement of the existing buildings with a new 1,550 place secondary school together with associated parking, landscaping and new sports facilities.

Bracknell is currently undergoing a period of transformation with ambitious plans for the large-scale redevelopment of the town.  Garth Hill College is being viewed as a flagship development due to its prominent location close to the town centre.  Councillors were quick to praise the architectural quality of the scheme.   

This success further enhances Scott Brownrigg’s position as one of the UK's leading providers of educational services both in town planning and architecture.
