Provision of enhanced life science facilities and an AgriTech centre for Wiltshire College

Our role

  • Working with AWW Architects from 2017 - 2020, we have secured a range of planning permissions and consents to support the redevelopment of Wiltshire College’s Salisbury and Lackham Campuses. Development at both campuses has been underpinned by investment from the Swindon and Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership.
  • Innovation is at the heart of the redevelopments. The Salisbury Campus scheme includes modern laboratories and education facilities to support new Life Science courses.
  • We led the strategic planning advice, EIA and strategic communications support for the phased redevelopment of both campuses.
  • Our responsibilities and success have included navigating both applications through extensive formal application discussions and stakeholder consultation. We have secured a range of permissions across the sites, including full planning permission, prior notification of demolition, listed building consent, non-material amendments, and discharge of conditions.


  • We successfully negotiated a range of timely consents to allow the college to redevelop the scheme in accordance with their phasing programme on both campuses.
  • Having built a strong working relationship with Wiltshire Council and the case officer since 2017, we negotiated a number of complex considerations at both campuses to secure approval for developments which met the needs of the college and future students, whilst responding to the sensitivity of the locations and surrounding heritage assets.
  • Through liaison with the council and a comprehensive Screening Report, we effectively screened out the need for EIA for the new robotic milking unit.
  • The new facilities will deliver a cutting-edge, energy efficient AgriTech centre at Lackham and modern facilities at Salisbury to support its enhanced life sciences offer. The new robotic milking unit at Home Farm will deliver high quality state-of-the-art teaching facilities, an expanded curriculum and up-to-date technology to promote the rural agricultural and farming industries in Wiltshire.
