This site was the main warehouse and distribution premises for the Devizes based brewery Wadworth & Co Ltd, containing workshops and stabling for shire horses. RCC became involved in this site to act on behalf of the brewery who intended to reorganise their activities and operations whereby the main site would become redundant as a result.
Commercial case studies
Sixpenny Nurseries have a small group of nurseries in Wiltshire. Their lease in Devizes was ending and new premise was a priority. RCC discussed possible options with them but a number of possible sites raised issues concerning the potential impact of the proposed use on traffic and residential amenity of an area.
RCC was asked by the architects for this job (PKA Architects) to assist them by submitting a planning application for a farm diversification proposal. The proposal, on a dairy farm, was to establish a micro ice cream factory within an existing small agricultural building whilst then building an additional linked building to house a café.
RCC was approached by a farmer from outside of Devizes who wanted to create a golf driving range as part of a farm diversification project. It was clear straight away that, whilst this was an excellent business proposition with little competition in the local area, it would raise a number of difficult planning issues, including possible; highways impact, ecological impact, landscape impact and light pollution.
Whitehall is an extremely popular and successful garden centre near the historic and attractive National Trust village of Lacock. It has successfully grown on an ad hoc basis since 1968 and remains in the ownership of the Self family.
RCC was brought on board by PKA Architects when they were approached by a developer proposing a mixed use development on a vacant site in Devizes town centre. The site accommodated a single storey clinic building and car park but historically there would have been a building on the main road frontage
RCC has been involved in a wide range of solar projects ranging from small scale private installations, roof and ground mounted systems at farms and large scale installations up to 20 megawatts.

After doing a lot of research on planning consultants, we felt Richard Cosker and his team were best placed to help us achieve planning permission for our new build house.
It was a complicated application as the land was classed as agricultural with a Boarding Cattery business running on the site too.
Richard and Jenny are so knowledgeable and professional, and the planning statement they submitted left little room for the council to argue a negative outcome! We were granted outline planning permission for a 3 bedroom house, followed a few months later by full planning permission for our dream house.
We cannot recommend this company enough, very happy clients, thank you!
Peter and Claire Townsend, Steeple Ashton

We have valued the expertise of Richard Cosker and his team in helping us obtain planning permission on a redundant chapel, but at the same time there was recognition of the sensitivity needed for this project
