Director Crossmark Developments
The planning team has, and continues to, provide professional advice for us on a number of site within the College’s Estate which require planning permission. We have always been extremely satisfied with the service provided and consider it to be of a very high professional standard. This has recently included helping College to achieve consent for a new boarding house in the Cheltenham Conservation Area, a consent which has been very important to our success moving forward.
