Planning authorities have granted planning permission for the regeneration of the historic waterfront in Chepstow, South Wales this month. Wynndel Property Management, a London and Wales based property services firm, are the developers behind this mixed-use project.
The scheme, which overlooks the river Wye, will include 57 houses, 112 apartments, 5,102 sq ft of office space and a 1,055 sq ft café/restaurant. There will also be a new riverside walk and heritage trail, improved public open spaces, footpaths, access and parking.
The 2.4 ha site is located close to the town’s Norman castle within the Chepstow Conservation Area. In addition, the site adjoins a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and Special Area of Conservation (SAC) as well as containing a scheduled ancient monument.
Barton Wilmore, the UK’s Largest Planning Consultancy, secured the resolution to grant planning permission on behalf of Wynndel Property Management. Rio architects, recently awarded “Architectural Practice of the Year” at the Insider Property Awards (Wales), have used modern architecture sympathetic to the surroundings. Local members have hailed the project as a ‘visionary scheme’.
“We are delighted to have had such overwhelming support for this project. Our vision is to create a sustainable and high quality development which will enhance the Chepstow waterfront, Gateway to Wales and provide an area which can be enjoyed by existing local residents and new neighbours alike.” Says Peter Mills, Development Director at Wynndel Property Management
