_Design and Access Statement The proposal of the Casa Milà hotel is appropriate to the site setting due to the use of the Yorkshire stone veneer on the finish of the building which sensitively incorporates a crisp finish of the design which fits into the Huddersfield town centre context. The context has influenced the design of the Casa Mila hotel by inspiring the materiality of the Yorkshire stone veneer. In addition, the aluminium cladding has also been inspired by the context as a sensitive material which reflects the surroundings with an emblematic lustre. Also, the context has influenced the design via the massing surrounding the site influencing the massing of the Casa Milà hotel whereby it sits in a strategic position in the site with vistas towards Castle Hill. The scale of the hotel is in proportion with the surrounding buildings. The four story surrounding buildings are only overshadowed by one tier of the five-storey hotel which allows it to have a prominence without disturbing the natural surroundings. The width of the Cassimere hotel is approximately 24 m, with a height of 65 feet and a length of 40 m. These are the approximate dimensions of the volume taken up by the massing on the site. The current features on the existing site are a stone fence surrounding the car park in addition to an electrical supply services box in the centre of the car park. In addition, the current car park site is full of gravel and tarmac. The building design has ease of accessibility as there is a carpark provided on in the basement level of the building for vehicular access and parking space for hotel staff and residents on the primitive street side of the building. The building is also accessible via pedestrians by the pathways and the prominent entrance which directs pedestrians to the hotel amenities. There is also signage around the Casa Milà hotel which directs vehicular and pedestrian access. To be sure there is sufficient soil depth available a soil remediation study will be carried out provided that the site is a Brownfield site and the current car park area which may have been polluted by the potentially hazardous electrical box. In accordance with the Kirklees local plan policy 10.16 the highway design for new residential developments; the parking and pedestrian access as well as vehicular access has been set out in accordance with these policies to ensure safety and correct compliance for accessibility. Local policies have been adhered to by the design being certified against the regulations set out in the Kirklees local plan design policy which is also supported by the National Planning Practice. In addition, sewage has been addressed on the site by ensuring adequate drainage of surface water run-off and adequate drainage of foul water with pipe work leading to disposal tank under the building. Also, the use of drainage pipes and bitumen flat roof roofing systems with the pitch of 3° have been used for surface runoff. Surface materials within the hotel are certified to a high standard against British standards to allow consistency of quality through the building design. Disability access has been provided by the disabled parking spaces in the basement carpark as well as the provision of WC appliances and fittings on every level of the hotel. Disability procedures have been correctly adhered to. These details are shown in the plans and site plan submitted to the Kirklees Metropolitan Council. In compliance with the equality act 2010 which incorporates the disability discrimination act 1995 the building design has internal access of elevator shafts on every floor for disability access. In addition to 1100mm doors and 1000mm doors with adequate standard access for wheelchair users. All components of the hotel are built in compliance with the access design guide SPD. The design of the Casa Milà hotel incorporates fire protected stairways on two sides of the building with fire escapes in compliance with the building regulations Part B for fire safety with fire doors and corridors within safe widths and lengths. There is also accessibility to fire exit doors on each side of the building ground floor, as well as signage to direct hotel users in the event of a fire. In addition, fire safety stairways have 1800 mm landing bays for disability and wheelchair users in the event of a fire with safety in accessibility for means of escape. This is in adherence with fire building regulation standards Part B.

In adherence with the Kirklees local plan policy template 10.14 for the Casa Milà hotel is designed with a form which allows strategic views and vistas for surrounding buildings in respect to adjacent dwellings. In accordance with the Kirklees local plan policy 10.1 to the design of the hotel has incorporated a parametric shading device a prominent central component which entices accessibility to the hotel for the community residence and community involvement leading towards the main entrance point of the hotel. The Casa Milà hotel has taken its concept from the inspiration of the promotion of Huddersfield town to the Barclays premiership in 2017. The Casa Milà hotel has been derived through devising a structural grid after extrapolating the football inspired goalpost net pattern of the form. These extractions of shapes are not only striking but create a form of step like tiers which represents the progression of Huddersfield towns climb from the lower tiers of English football to the top tier represented by the top tier of the hotel. This aims at describing the progression of the town football club to the Premier League with the hotel as an emblem of this with a core design principle of progression. In terms of sustainability photovoltaic panels have been used as well as an efficient mixed mode heating system with a boiler. A core principle of the design is sustainability through good quality building and intelligently incorporated construction procedures such as the cladding panels that are replaceable and recyclable for the future sustainability of the building design. The Casa Milà hotel will have a positive economic effect on the local community by providing jobs within the hotel for local residents and boosting the economy of the town centre by increasing attraction of interest to the hotel generating revenue particularly on match days of the Huddersfield Town football club. This will also increase the footfall of surrounding businesses for local stores in the area providing an increase in the regional net profit. The addition of greenery will bring an attractive foliage to the natural surroundings as well as the plantation of bushes and flowers surrounding the decorated paving flagstone and greenery areas. Heritage assets in the area have been addressed as the site is not a listed building site neither is it a conservation area therefore the design proposal of the hotel doesn’t interfere with heritage assets. In terms of geological assets, the site sits on the silt stone underground base, which has required the use of pile foundations to secure the building in to the ground in design.
