    FBE's The Agents' Perspective Breakfast

    This morning, (Friday 22nd April), I attended a breakfast seminar at Radisson Blu put on by Forum for the Built Environment and sponsored by Caulmert.  The topic of the seminar was ”The Agents’ Perspective”’.  Speaking at the event were John Cooper of Deloitte, Dan Crossley of WHR, and Dan Davies of Metis. Each speaker provided their own specialist analysis and insight into past and present trends, and predictions on what the future in the development and planning industries might hold.  This blog provides a summary of the conversation at this morning’s session.

    The Silk Works, Invicta House Submission

    NJL has submitted a full planning application for the redevelopment of existing offices in Manchester City Centre to provide 50,000 sq ft of new office accommodation. On behalf of our clients Henry Boot Developments Ltd and Invicta Manchester Ltd, the proposed development branded The Silk Works will provide much needed new office floorspace across 8 storeys incorporating the existing Invicta House Victorian façades on Atkinson Street and Scott Place. The ground floor will provide the opportunity for a coffee shop or kiosk to be established, alongside amenity space for occupiers.

    Invicta House is a Victorian building with local heritage significance located within the Deansgate/ Peter Street Conservation Area.  As such, the project has been a complex heritage case that has been subject to close liaison and consultation between NJL, Northmill Associates, Historic England and Manchester City Council.  The scheme has been revised and tailored throughout the pre-application period to reflect comments received from key stakeholders.  From this NJL has developed a positive working relationship with the Council, Historic England and the project team.

    John Atkins' Guest Blog: Aerotropolis

    A Time Magazine article stated that aerotropolis is ‘one of the ten ideas that will change the world’ and it is a challenge to all those major cities that have embraced the aerotropolis concept.

    "The days when we built our airports around cities now seem distant; in the new, mobile century, we build our cities around airports."

    Housing, Planning, Infrastructure and Devolution headlines from the Conservative Party Conference 4th-7th October

    In case you were not aware, from Sunday to Wednesday of this week (4th to 7th of October), just over ten miles up the road from our Heald Green office, Manchester was looking a little bluer than normal and for once this was not purely down to rain or an impassioned representation from Manchester City Football Club!  In a packed agenda, the Conservative Party Conference 2015 took residency at Manchester Central, a venue dubbed as ‘an award winning, globally renowned venue in the heart of one of the world’s most vibrant cities’.

    Policy pledges have been batted about left, right and centre at this year's Conservative Party Conference and with housing and the economy high up on the agenda, there's been a wealth of discussions that could have wide-ranging ramifications for planning and development in the UK.
