Westlegate, Norwich

Lanpro secured planning permission to convert and vertically extend the redundant former office building known as Westlegate House to form 14 flatted dwelling units.

Lanpro worked closely with the client in selecting the design architect, 5th Studio, and subsequently worked with them in developing the designs with a creative planning approach.

The existing class A3 restaurant use at ground floor level within Westlegate House was retained under the approved scheme and now contains an A1 retail use. The approved scheme also involved the demolition of listed structures at the rear of 20 Westlegate and the physical extension of this building to form a new retail space. Under the proposals, planning permission was also granted for an A1 retail unit and three flatted dwellings along Timber Hill and two 3-storey town houses in the former car park known as Lion and Castle Yard.

"Philip devised the planning and design strategy to convert and re-use this long-redundant high-rise commercial building in the heart of Norwich to residential use. This scheme included the demolition of listed and other structures within the Conservation Area to facilitate development. In addition to this conversion, additional buildings were also erected as sensitive residential and retail infill development within Lion and Castle Yard, off Timberhill. Philip visualised the scheme, prepared the development strategy for the site, worked with the developer to select architects and manage sub-consultants and took the planning application from inception to determination."
