Westcombe Build Timeline

2015
Planning Begins

Planning for the redevelopment of Westcombe and the Boathouse initially began in 2015 when we approached Stephen Guard of Stephen Guard Architects.

2017
Planning Submitted

The planning application was submitted in March 2017, however given the property's prominent location in Batson creek, it took nearly 3 years to receive approval on the redevelopment.

December
2019
Planning Granted

Finally, in December 2019 we were granted planning permission for the new property. However, due to the conditions placed on the planning permission it would be another 8 months until we were finally able to commence with the demolition phase of the project.

2020
Demolition Begins

In November 2020, demolition finally commenced on the old property. Given the large amount of asbestos cladding on the property we engaged specialists Gilpin Demolition to carry out the demolition. In just 4 weeks the team was able to safely remove and dispose of the asbestos before demolishing the old property to the ground.
