New office development in Bath gets outline planning permission

Posted on by Offices.org.uk

LOCAL planners in Bath have given outline planning permission for a new development which will create 20,000 sqm of new Grade A office space.

The Bath Quays North scheme is part of the council’s wider flagship Bath Quays regeneration project which will span both sides of the River Avon.

Cllr Paul Myers, Cabinet Member for Economic & Community Regeneration at Bath & North East Somerset Council, commented:

“Outline planning at Bath Quays North is a hugely significant step forward for Bath. Bath Quays will meet the needs of Bath’s successful local business community who wish to expand, as well as encourage others to move to the area, bringing with them higher-wage jobs, investment and economic growth.”

It is expected that the Bath Quays North development will also deliver a minimum of 70 new homes and a new, modern basement car park.

Bath & North East Somerset Council is in the process of selecting a development partner for the Bath Quays North scheme. Once a detailed planning application has been approved,  construction is likely to commence in early 2020.
