Liz Lake Associates was part of a comprehensive design team including ADAM Architects, GVA Grimley and Halcrow Yolles commissioned to acquire planning consent for major redevelopment of the historic RAF site.
As Bentley Priory is part of a major picturesque landscape with a Victorian-era Italian garden, Liz Lake Associates played a key role in locating new buildings and infrastructure on this landscape-led project.
Proposals for the restoration and long-term management of the historic landscape were prepared as a setting for the proposed residential development and the new use of the listed mansion as a museum. Liz Lake Associates was responsible for the preparation of a Landscape Conservation Management Plan and all landscape-related documents and plans for submission to the Local Planning Authority.
Following extensive consultations, the planning committee of the London Borough of Harrow approved the application prepared by Liz Lake Associates and the rest of the design team.
The site has been sold to developers and the next stage of detailed design has commenced. Some of the site is now occupied with other houses and apartments under offer.
