Royal Mail

Protecting Hereford delivery office from CPO
BNPPRE provided planning, CPO and valuation advice to Royal Mail to address the risks presented to Royal Mail by Herefordshire Council’s Link Road proposal.

  • Location Hereford, UK
  • Key figures 1.86 acre site
  • Contact Dan Parry-Jones, +44 (0) 117 984 8418

 

The results

  • Long running project period during which the Council’s Link Road proposals evolved, changing along the way and presenting uncertainty that had to be addressed
  • The Link Road proposal was part of a wider regeneration scheme involving numerous other landowners, resulting in delays and complications potentially affecting Royal Mail’s operational ability
  • Technical and design issues around the Link Road hampered progress with contract negotiations and had to be overcome to achieve the right outcome for Royal Mail’s business
  • Re-provision proposals required third party land interests to be acquired under CPO.

 

The challenges

  • BNPPRE negotiated with Herefordshire Council over a prolonged period and provided advice to Royal Mail that identified an operationally satisfactory re-provision arrangement. Our planning team undertook representations to planning documents and CPO to protect Royal Mail’s interests. 
  • Our team structured and agreed a Conditional Contract for land transactions and site re-development.
  • Assisted Royal Mail with setting up and running the joint project with Herefordshire Council for delivery of re-provided Delivery Office.
  • Preparation of expert witness evidence for CPO Inquiry.
