Nash project is ‘highly commended’ at RTPI SW awards

24 January 2019

We were pleased to attend the ceremony for this year’s RTPI SW Awards for Planning Excellence, where our McArthur’s Yard project was ‘highly commended’.

The project was commended in the RTPI SW’s ‘Excellence during the Planning Decision Process’ category. The RTPI regional awards for Planning Excellence celebrate projects and people who have helped create exceptional places and improved the lives of those who live and work there. They also highlight how planning and planners work to create a safe, healthy and sustainable future.

The McArthur’s Yard project will see a long-derelict plot on Bristol’s historic harbourside redeveloped to provide 147 residential units, workspace, café and gallery space. Despite various redevelopment attempts by others, the site has been vacant for over 20 years. However, Nash Partnership gained permission for a mix of uses that we are confident will deliver a viable development, which others have struggled to achieve.

The approved scheme will create a development that responds to the site’s harbourside location in this unique corner of Bristol. We delivered integrated planning, urban design and architecture services to our client The Guinness Partnership and the development is now on site.
