Architect ESA has received planning consent for a mixed-use leisure and retail centre in Cheltenham for developer Salmon Harvester. The 23,000 m2 project will integrate two existing buildings on the site of the former Whitbread brewery. The solution satisfied the local planners, who were keen to ensure the developer was sensitive to the conservation area surroundings. The project team includes structural engineer Waterman Partnership, project manager EC Harris, and main contractor Galliford Try.
