Project:  Planning Consultancy – Morley Hayes

Morley Hayes, located around 5 miles northeast of Derby, is one of the most popular 4-star hotels in Derbyshire offering championship golf facilities, luxury accommodation, conference facilities, fine dining and wedding ceremonies. It employs around 190 staff, making it a very important employer in the local area. However, it is located in the Nottingham and Derby Green Belt which adds an extra layer of planning controls and restrictions which any development proposal must comply with.

Planning & Design Practice Ltd has provided planning consultancy services for a number of projects at Morley Hayes working alongside local architectural practices Morrison Design and Justin Smith Architects. These projects have included:

  • an extension to Roosters Bar & Restaurant with an outdoor seating area on the roof;
  • additional office space adjacent to the golf pavilion;
  • the erection of an 8 bay extension to the driving range with improvements to associated facilities;
  • the provision of a new bus shelter

A number of issues arose with the above proposals, particularly regarding the impact on the Green Belt, potential light pollution and the impact on the visual amenities of the area. When any issues arose we worked proactively with the local authority, our clients and the project team to amend proposals or obtain additional information in order to secure planning permission at the first attempt for each of the proposals.

Planning & Design Practice have a wealth of experience in designing and securing planning permission for commercial projects for businesses such as Morley Hayes.

We have the required skills to design both small and large scale schemes in-house and tailor the design to the client’s unique specifications. For more information on how we can assist your business aspirations, please contact us on 01332 347371.
