A - Z Projects

Orion have been advising Hallam Land Management & Blorr Homes regarding the heritage aspects of both of their separate outline consented proposed urban extension on the west side of Worcester.  One of Orion's Directors began working on the project in a previous employment and Orion were retained to continue this role when the compant began trading in 2015.  Work has comprised a desk-based assessent, geophysical survey of the site, design input to the masterplan and negotiations with Historic England regarding the buffer round a scheduled medieval moated site, the production of a heritage ES chapter.  Consultations with the LPA's archaeologial advisor resulted in an agreement that all trenching should be a condition of outline planning permission, not pre-determination.  Further recent succesful negotiations have been undertaken with Historic Engand regarding the acceptability and design of a SUDS basin within the scheduled monument buffer zone.
