Riverside Hub, Northampton, Northamptonshire


APC Planning were appointed in April 2013 to secure planning permission for the change of use of an industrial building in Northampton to allow its use as a children’s play centre with a day care centre.

At the time of our appointment the application had already been submitted and was being recommended for refusal by the Council who had concerns over highway issues and also the impact on the town centre.

Following the resubmission of the withdrawn application, APC were able to provide a robust justification for the scheme and overcome the concerns of both the local planning authority and the highway authority. This included the preparation of an Impact Assessment and Sequential Report which demonstrated that the facility would not detract from the town centre, despite its proximity to the Riverside Retail Park. Following the approval of planning permission, the facility, known as Riverside Hub opened in the summer of 2013 and has become one of the best facilities of its type in the country.
