ROYAL BATH & WEST SHOWGROUND

Royal Bath & West Showground Area

Mendip District Council (MDC) has designated the Royal Bath & West Showground site as an Enterprise Area to help attract new business investment and growth, and is working towards a Local Development Order (LDO) for Class B1-B8 uses to help encourage new development and ensure prompt delivery.

CCL act for the development partner alongside the Council, to coordinate the preparation of all multi disciplinary technical documentation, alongside planning, design and delivery advice, to progress the LDO for up to 27,000 sq.m of employment floorspace at a priority employment allocation.

Alongside this role, we have acted for the Wild Beer Brewery in securing detailed planning permission for their HQ brewing facility and visitor centre at the Showground, which directly supports the Council’s rural economy vision at the site.
