Garden centre and electric charging roadside uses in North Devon

After a very bumpy six years, and a particularly unusual planning committee, we are delighted that North Devon Council granted planning permission yesterday for a replacement St Johns Garden Centre close to the A39 in Barnstaple. The development includes roadside uses such as a drive-through coffee shop and fuel station that will deliver the first rapid EV charging points in this area.  The highway authority had objected to the scheme, but Entran were able to satisfy the planning authority and committee that the development would not only be safe and suitable but would in fact improve pedestrian and cyclist safety in this area and go a long way to meeting local and national sustainable policy objectives.

Permission for Aldi as part of Porthcawl regeneration

Just before Christmas, Aldi received planning permission for a new store in Porthcawl, South Wales, within the Porthcawl Waterfront Regeneration Area. The approved store includes use of local limestone, timber cladding and a wave-shaped roof; the scheme also includes improved public realm, public art by a local artist and highway improvements to promote walking and cycling. This scheme is the first approval within the wider Salt Lake area and will kick start development here which will bring positive impacts to Porthcawl residents and businesses.

We love getting creative with our logo. Over the years it has appeared on a lot of impressive site hoardings and countless reports, publications and presentations; however, it has also popped up in some interesting places including an electric vehicle at Goodwood circuit, some cycling team jerseys at Brands Hatch, and a skateboard on children’s TV.
