BBC Oxford Road
Since acquiring the BBC Oxford Road site, Vectos advised Realty Estates on the regeneration of former BBC site on Oxford Road, Manchester. This advice included the highway closures for the demolition of the BBC buildings, feasibility advice on the initial masterplan for the Oxford Road site development and following on from that work we were appointed by Total Car Parks Ltd to secure approval for a Temporary Car Park on the site.
That Temporary Car Park application required a Transport Statement, Drainage Advice across the site as well as Protection Measures for cars and pedestrians. Traffic surveys were commissioned which provide useful base flow data for future analysis. Planning Approval was gained for the Temporary Car Park in 2013.
Vectos has the experience to offer detailed design advice in order to secure planning approval for the Temporary Car Park as well as experience of major development projects. In particular we advised on the deliverability of different development scenarios presented by Realty Estates.
That advice included the implications of the Cross City Bus Scheme that will radically change the highway routeing and bus movements in the area, advising on the junction layouts, pedestrian desire lines and parking solutions as well as the likely highway operation.
