Planning permission granted for Scunthorpe apartment scheme

Falconer Chester Hall has secured planning permission for an apartment development in the centre of Scunthorpe.

The five storey development, on Trafford Street in the town centre, is for AD Future Houses Limited and comprises 20 apartments, a ground floor car park and cycle store.

The site is currently vacant following the demolition of a low quality commercial building.

“The scheme is in close proximity to Scunthorpe High Street, it creates a strong, interactive frontage, using recessed brick details and pushed back windows to add depth,” commented Robert Brym, Associate Director of Falconer Chester Hall who is leading the project’s design and delivery.

“Punctured windows and recessed brick panels create variation on the top floors and the resident and vehicle entrances provide street level frontage” added Robert.

The new development makes more efficient use of the footprint and incorporates 6 ground floor car parking spaces, 20 cycle spaces and is located within walking distance of the train station.

“This is a confident, contemporary rendition of apartment living and offers a high quality residential development within Scunthorpe town centre,” commented Dawid Dowbusz, director of AD Future Houses Limited.

“We have focused on a highly energy-efficient design to minimise energy consumption and costs and, overall, the scheme sits very well on its site.  I am looking forward to seeing it built and occupied,” he added.
