Charlton Court Student Accommodation

Client: Unite

Location: Bath

Charlton Court comprises a high quality purpose built student accommodation development located within the Bath World Heritage Site and adjacent to a listed building. The site is also within the River Avon floodplain.

We undertook a Landscape and Visual Appraisal to inform the overall site layout and guide proposals in relation to the riverside edge and floodplain.

We undertook ecology surveys (including for bats) and provided associated advice to address nature conservation legislation, meet planning application requirements and provide habitat enhancements.

Working with the architects and engineers we assisted in the design of floodplain mitigation which comprised the creation of a contoured basin planted with native trees and shrubs and wildflower meadow seed.

Following planning consent we prepared detailed proposals for the riverside edge, site frontage and courtyard garden.
