‘Landmark’ residential scheme given the go-ahead in Loughborough

What the scheme will look like

A “landmark” residential scheme in Loughborough has been given the green light by local planning chiefs.

HSSP Architects has secured planning permission for a luxury 16-home development on the site of a former taxi office on the main arterial route between the railway station and Loughborough town centre.

A collection of workshops on the site are set to be demolished to make way for the scheme.

The new 5-storey development is part of Charnwood Borough Council’s long-term plan to regenerate the area.

HSSP Architects has designed a number of new developments in the area, including The Gate at Loughborough’s Waterside Village.

Richard Cooper, director at HSSP and lead architect for the project, said: “Following pre-application talks at the initial stages about how this development aligns with Charnwood Borough Council’s local improvement plans, and ongoing discussions throughout the planning process, we are delighted that planning approval has been granted for this exciting new development. This will play an important part in the ambitious regeneration of the area which will provide numerous benefits to the local community.”
