Katy is a chartered planning and development surveyor based out of Chapel Place. She leads the London Planning Team who are active in promoting and securing development opportunities in London and the South East. Katy specialises in negotiating planning permission for high density residential regeneration schemes for clients such as EcoWorld London and Barratt London.

Carter Jonas has secured planning permission on behalf of private residential developer Willco Properties Ltd from Epsom and Ewell Borough Council for a new student accommodation development in Surrey. Willco Properties Ltd has an ongoing relationship with the University of the Creative Arts (UCA) to provide high quality student accommodation across Epsom.

The six storey, 99-bedroom development known as Bradford House will also include 2,384 sq ft (221.5 sqm) of Grade A office space and basement parking. It will replace the ageing, vacant office building located on East Street. The new building has been designed by architects Geoffrey Sloan Associates.

Carter Jonas secured planning permission for the neighbouring student accommodation development, Crossways House, in 2014. This included a change of use and extension to the former office building to create 97 student bedrooms with ground floor office space.

Katy Davis, Partner, Carter Jonas, commented: “UCA recently announced the launch of a new business school for the 2018/19 academic year and it is hoped the scheme will be fully operational in time for 2020. There is currently a 50% shortfall in accommodation, so the development will be integral to meeting demand in an area that is already popular with students. It will also bring further vitality to Epsom town centre given the development’s proximity to shops, amenities and public transport.”
