Waveney Valley Business Park

Commercial planning and design for business park, Ditchingham, Norfolk

In 2015, Durrants successfully negotiated multiple planning approvals from the Broads Authority to facilitate the expansion of an existing business park.

The development involved a complex mix of planning requirements, including permitted development rights for changes of use, demolition, extensions to commercial buildings and retrospective works.

Additionally, there were a number of planning challenges to be addressed, including flooding (proximity to the River Waveney), Conservation Area impacts, access and native planting issues.
