A planning application for the Mansion House site has now been submitted that will carefully blend the old with the new. The now disused library building will be demolished and the capacity of the Mansion House building will be extended to accommodate business units of varying sizes. These will mainly focus on digital solutions in industry and society which has been highlighted as a growth area. Space will be built into the designs where industry, academia, institutions and the public sector can come together to network and share ideas.
There are two planning applications that can be viewed by using the links below. Consultation for application 16/11304/DP4 closes on the 23rd December and for 16/11410/LBC on the 29th December. A decision will then be taken on the 18th January 2017.
