New Park Street


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. The previous photos of the site are shown.

We worked closely with PKA to create a scheme that met the client’s requirements but also ensured the best chance of attaining planning approval. There were subsequent negotiations with council planners and conservation officers but final approval was given for a wholly 3 storey building with a total of 7 high quality 2 bedroom flats on the first and second floor.

Our client already had Majestic Wine in place as a prospective tenant for the ground floor so our key issue was to maximise the amount of residential development on the upper floors to ensure the development was viable. The site was also in the Devizes Conservation Area with numerous listed buildings nearby, therefore the scale and design of the building needed to be appropriate for the area.

Mr and Mrs Humphries, Dilton Marsh

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 can unreservedly recommend RCC Town Planning Consultancy - Richard and Vicky were extremely professional and efficient at all times and worked hard to achieve an exceptional result for us.

Revd David Gray, Superintendent Minister North Wiltshire Methodist Circuit

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
