A new district heat network serving Bristol’s regeneration area

Our role

  • We were appointed by Vattenfall to assist in the delivery of a new district heat network that will serve the Bedminster Green regeneration area. 
  • We led on the co-ordination and preparation of a planning application for this linear scheme,  involving close liaison with the project team and ongoing advice to the client regarding submission requirements. 
  • A key part of our role was ensuring planning conditions were kept to a minimum to enable the development to commence within the tight delivery programme. This involved negotiations with the planning officer and clarity on the construction method during the determination period to reduce the number of planning conditions attached to the permission. Furthermore, we successfully negotiated longer construction.


  • Full planning permission was granted within the statutory timescales and with no pre-commencement conditions, enabling the immediate commencement of the development. 
  • Furthermore, we successfully negotiated longer construction hours to ensure the heat network was aligned with the delivery of the wider regeneration development which will be served by the heat network itself.
