Dalcour Maclaren was delighted to provide Land and Planning input for an important Severn Trent project in Nottinghamshire, which affected a Conservation Area and SSSI.
In recognition of the innovative, collaborative approach taken, and the significant benefits the scheme has brought to the local community, it has recently been nominated for a prestigious ICE (Institute of Civil Engineers) award.
Senior Surveyor, Alice Beckett and Associate, Paul Bishop from DM negotiated a complex land purchase and secured access to private land, whilst Senior Environmental Planner, Rory Hollings headed up the team that completed a challenging planning consent. This helped pave the way for an upgrade to the network, including installing a new vacuum sewerage system, allowing first-time sewerage to be provided to several properties in Teversal. This solution has delivered health and safety benefits improvements, a low carbon footprint and significant environmental benefits.
Last Friday (10th June), the team celebrated the success of the project at the ICE East Midlands Merit Awards 2022. Although it didn’t win the Small Project Award, it was fantastic to reflect on what was achieved and for the project, and all involved to be recognised in this way.
