Historic parkland and grade II listed country house - hotel development

Bretton Hall is a Grade II listed building set within a wider historic Grade II listed historic park and garden, which forms part of the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Planning permission was being sought to convert the country house into a luxury hotel complex with commercial business office accommodation.

Rushbond plc engaged us to provide arboricultural consultancy services to contribute to their planning application for the re-development. The proposal was successful in receiving planning permission in February 2013.

What was our role?

BS 5837 Tree Survey and Arboricultural Impact Assessment

We undertook a BS5837 Tree Survey of the trees surrounding Bretton Hall. This followed on from a previous survey of all trees within the grounds of the wider parkland and Yorkshire Sculpture Park grounds.

Working alongside the team’s architects and engineers we undertook an Arboricultural Impact Assessment of the proposed re-development. We advised on tree removal requirements, arboricultural works including health and safety tree work, tree protection details and input into the landscaping proposals for the site.
