Planning permission is to be granted for an innovative residential development involving the conversion of a Grade B Listed former Victorian school building at 154 Mcdonald Road, subject to the completion of a legal agreement. The successful appeal was made to the DPEA against the non-determination of the application by the City of Edinburgh Council.

SHP has continued the development of its new image and has today launched a new website.  The launch of the website coincides with an exciting new phase in the growth of the business, following a number of new instructions in the energy consenting, retail, mixed use and planning strategy sectors. 

SHP is pleased to announce its recruitment of Grant Young as Planning Director. Grant joins us following a successful career at GVA where he specialised in energy consenting and managing complex large scale mixed use planning processes.

SHP has assisted Scottish Enterprise with its responses to another two emerging Local Development Plans in Aberdeenshire and Fife.  

SHP drafted responses in consultation with representatives of Scottish Enterprise, allowing detailed responses to be finalised and submitted before each deadline.

SHP has project managed and coordinated the submission of a planning application to Dublin City Council for mixed use development (retail and café / restaurant) at Drimnagh, Dublin for Antcon Ltd.

The development will result in essential investment in this brownfield site, which has been vacant and derelict for a considerable period.

PPP secured SHP has secured planning permission in principle for a mixed use development in Stirling following an appeal to the Scottish Government’s Directorate of Planning and Environmental Appeals. 

The development will include up to 200 houses to be constructed by Barratt Homes West of Scotland, and approximately 2.4 hectares of retail, commercial and business land.  The appeal was granted following the failure of Stirling Council to determine the PPP application within the statutory four month period.
