PlanningSphere were appointed by NHS Property Services in 2014 to advise on the redevelopment of the redundant former Westbury Hospital site, which closed in 2011. Following an iterative process of pre-application engagement with the local community, Wiltshire Council granted outline planning permission for a scheme of 58 dwellings in February 2017.
PlanningSphere were subsequently appointed by Backhouse Housing to submit and negotiate a detailed reserved matters application. This was permitted by Wiltshire Council in early 2018. Work commenced on site in 2019.
